The Covid-19 outbreak in the country that led to the closure of learning institutions was a blessing in disguise to this Opera news hub creator last year. Many people including my parents lost their jobs hence the means of getting our daily bread was shuttered.
They struggled to make our ends meet. In May last year, I was introduced to this online writing by a friend. I took it seriously after he confirmed that Opera is indeed a legit platform that pays its contributors every month. KSh.47,000 was the first payment I got in June 2020.
I was very happy because that was the first huge amount of money that was deposited in my bank account. Being a student at Maseno University, I do get HELB Loan but I cannot compare it with my first Opera payment. That was the time that account quality, originality, and reading time was being looked at.
We used the money to buy some of the necessities we need in our home. Opera has been a blessing to our family. In September 2020, Maseno University announced that we are going to do our end Semester examinations online. The Memo read that all students should have a laptop with a working webcam to do the exams.
I did not possess even a second-hand laptop at those particular times. I can remember my parent asking me what I'm going to do. According to him, the personal computers were very expensive thus he could not afford to purchase them.
The only thing he did not know was that I was saving some amount of money from the ones I'm being paid as a writer. I managed to buy a Lenovo Laptop that cost KSh.37,000. I was a happy person because I managed to do all the end Semester examinations during that time and currently an owner of the said Laptop.
Opera has been my favorite online platform that I will encourage anyone who wants to earn money to register because the registration process is not long and does not require any fee.
Some of the things you should take note of when writing as a news hub writer are the quality and originality of your articles. Lastly, I would like to say thank you to all the Opera staff that have made our writing successful. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
