Goodness started learning from a shoemaker in Ibadan and also learnt from the internet. She enrolled for an online course on how to make Italian shoes and as the years went by she started selling her works.
According to her, Parental influence made her start shoemaking.
"But I don’t regret it because I had nothing in mind to do. I was very versatile growing up so I was finding it difficult to decide on what I wanted to do. I had a passion for everything. I was advised to go into catering, food technology, and then art. We kept going around in circles. When it was time to take JAMB, I still did not know what I wanted to do but went with Dental Surgery."
