My dream to give young girls a second chance in life!
Life starts with a dream! I was introduced to World Pulse by a friend and ever since I joined it I haven’t regretted. My personal vision for my life is to be a mentor and trainer of child mothers and other unfortunate girls who have not had the opportunity to go far with education. It could be due to their own making or through parental negligence. With teenage pregnancy on the rise, many young girls are losing their lives through abortion. Many who already have babies think that that is the end of the road for them. It is quite unfair to see young bright girls getting wasted.
My vision for my life is to attain a PhD if I can get a scholarship and also to have my own NGO which will be basically for helping these girls I’m so passionate about. I envision my life to be enriched with knowledge that will make me self-reliant and self-sustainable in my future as a supportive parent and mentor to teenage girls. Many parents need to be sensitized that the plight of these girls sometimes is not their own making and therefore a mistake cannot be corrected with another mistake. I want to be the voice of the voiceless through advocacy and trainings.
My personal vision to my Community is to be a role model to all orphan girls and single mothers that" their plight is not their choice". I believe with support here and there, they can still make it the way I made it especially for the child mothers. Gone are the days when fellow students would bully one and teachers being hostile towards such girls. They can be freed from those obstacles if only they can build self-confidence and remain focused by becoming self-disciplined, determined and dedicated to hard work for a brighter future. They can be what they want to be without messing up their lives with simple baits from people who would only want to use them because of being needy and helpless. Situations can change for the better. I managed to overcome so many obstacles in life – rejection, abduction, failed marriage name it but I still walk with my head held high. How did I do it? I managed to do this by using the stumbling blocks on my way as I want to stress to everyone that what are perceived as stumbling blocks and defeat can become stepping stones to victory if one remains focused and determined.
My vision for the World is to be an advocate and voice to all orphan girls and single parents, that they can also live a fulfilled, independent, happy and satisfying life if only they would accept their situation as it is and forge ahead by living positively, productively. Life is what one makes it to be and everyone is entitled to live life with contentment. Life will remain as it is for these young people if I don’t start.
I want to be a voice of your Correspondent because your Correspondents have the audience that I can reach with my life testimony, you will also help me in reaching the whole world through your publicity. This is how your correspondence would help spread my vision.
I have helped my daughter achieve her dream and the young one is on her way. I need to break free and do what will make me happy. I will need resources to ensure my dream succeed, the dream to empower some of the girls in my community. The voice of your Correspondents will connect me with like-minded people and together we shall become one voice and this will be louder than my own voice.
I have never disclosed my past, I needed to get it off my shoulder and world pulse provided me the platform. Reading from others empowered me more and I know my dream will come to be.
I have started with what I have – talking about myself, counseling those who are despairing and come September, we are embarking on school and community visits. This is my dream!
