my hero, Mrs Rose Orji

Tags:

My hero is my mother, Mrs Rose Orji who brazened up to a very diificult and dchallenging situation when our father fell sick with gout. Gout then was a very uncommon ailment and attributed to superstitious cause.

My mother was torn between taking care of a sick husband who she simply thought had medical situation and training their five children in school. She took a teaching job as means of bringing resources to the family and engaged in part time cathering services so that her five children could have good education.

Today Five of us are university graduates and my father healed after receiving treatment from europe.

All these she was able to acheive with her meagre earnings as she got no contributions from family members as they did not believe in education for all especially the girl child education.

My mother is my hero because she made a lot of scarifice for the family she loves and also bestowed on us the importance of education because it was because of education she was able to acheive all she was able to.
