Exprience is a Ministry
Although I desired so much to study and get to the university, my dream was silenced at the age of 14 when I was made a bar maid by my brother. He had the potential to take me to school but he thought making me a bar maid was the best.
After one year of having bad experiences with drunkards I abandoned my job and went back home to dig with hope of getting school fees for the next academic year.
Through the help of my mother I managed to finish 'O' level from where I had stopped - Senior two( from Senior three to four).
After that I was to join high school (Senior five and six) before I could join the university however there was no hope because food could not produce anymore money for my education as my mother insisted.
I sat home for one more year. Through prayers GOD connected me with an American couple who paid my school fees from high school to University where I graduated with a Bachelors in Information Technology.
In my second year in the University I started paying school fees for a boy in my village who had passion for studying but had no opportunity. With limited resources I have and I am educating two boys and one girl. I have also connected two girls for sponsorship elsewhere one of them was in Senior two by then and now has joined the university doing bachelors in Business computing, the other was in grade7, (Primary seven) and now she is in Senior five, joining the university in two years.
With my tireless efforts in supporting youths, I believe I will change MANY lives from hopelessness to hopeful (Nobody to Somebody) this is all the products of my past life experience. I do believe Nobody is a Nobody given the opportunity and sense of direction.
I urge somebody to use their bad life experiences as opportunities for others in their communities.
