Hi its Leila from Kenya my bold ideas for 2009 is that i want to work hard and achieve my goals by being the youngest World Pulse correspondent..I would like to become a model and also a human rights advocate, especially girls and give support to orphans so that they may finish their education.i would also like to build a school for orphans through collecting funds from sponsors.they would also like to achieve their goals just as we do, i need to work hard to get more.some people don't respect orphans as they think orphans don't have the same rights but they do.most girls are also not being considered as girls they have to do all the house chores look after the younger ones and take care of the house but the males would go to school and all they do is loiter around.we won't allow that this time and we'll make sure everybody is equal.

Some girls are also sold off to old men which makes them sad because they are forced to do it,this time we wont allow it to happen. We give men chance to harass us which is not right we are brave and we can win.I hope we will be brave and i believe every body is equal.We will have a voice on PulseWire and i will write everything which affects us as girls on World Pulse incase i an allowed to be a young correspondent.Then we will say loudly,NO SEXUAL VIOLENCE,WOMEN ABUSE AND CHILD ABUSE.
