2013 VOF Week 4 saddened by the plight and cry of the girl next door
My vision in life is to impact positively in every single person I
meet no matter how little it is because I believe that if everybody
contribute in their own little way then it will add up into something
tangible witnessed by the world because someone's life would have been
changed in a positive way. I know I have untapped energy and all I
need is guidance, direction and support for me to realize my dream of
Serving community in a deserving manner. My dream is to finish my studies
and graduate though there are challenges which is making that really
difficult because I believe that every woman out there deserves an
opportunity to acquire that knowledge which comes from books despite
the passion I have when it comes to serving other people I still need
knowledge and wisdom to form a group of women whom I would love to
help them have knowledge on how to use internet and basic knowledge in
computer. There is a youth centre called One Stop Youth Information
Resource Centre which is already training youths here in Nairobi Kenya
but some youths can not afford to access the centre due to it’s
location in the central business centre.
My passion is to help people improve their lives it is an inborn thing that burns inside me since I was young making a difference in someone else’s life gave me joy and will to face every single day. At the moment there are three ladies looking up to me to be there for them whenever they need someone to talk to, both of them are HIV/AIDS Positive hey are all older than me but I am happy and always ready to listen to them. It doesn't have to be financial help though I wish I could help them financially because one of them really needs it since she is the bread winner in her family yet unemployed but because all of her siblings depend on her. I believe there are other young girls and women who need someone to give them hope for them to find the will to wake up the next morning knowing someone truly cares for them. I saw my aunt die with the virus because she could not accept and I don’t want any other person to lose their life. In my community where I come from statistics show that we are the most infected and affected with the virus.
If given an opportunity to be a Voices of Our Future Correspondent, the training and guidance I will receive will help me and give me strength to save girls in my community to say NO to wife inheritance and forced marriages and in the community around me at large because when the girl next door cries her pain pierces deep inside my HEART. I deserve this golden opportunity because since I am unable to continue with my studies due to lack of finance this will provide me with the knowledge hence I will be able to do what I LOVE the most that is SAVING MY COMMUNITY because change begins with me not my neighbor.
