Esse

Esse Erica Bassey; a Calabar girl from Abi local government, Ekureku. She has been controlled her whole life, until she decided to go to art class instead of science class; which only pissed her parent and made life harder for her. After choosing art as her department, she thought she gained freedom, but her parents still kept on controlling her. She finds her love for music, and writing . She has a very tough decision to make, Economics or Music. Her parents want Economics, so she can become a lawyer and take over her dad's firm; while she wants music, because of the passion she has for it. 
But, after she becomes friends with Ebun, things change and becomes better and clearer. She becomes her real self, and let it out. 
The main question is, how would her parents, and school mates react to the new her?
