How to make money as a student
As a student, you’ll be faced with many financial challenges which include rents, text-books, clothes and other basic things.

In most cases, an average parent doesn’t provide all these needs, they just give their wards pocket allowances to settle some of the needs and leave them to sort out the rest. These occur mostly in the University level and it leads to many students looking for alternatives on how to raise some money for their basic needs.
I’ll present different ways to make money as a student in two different ways, the offline method and the online method.
