TOUT EST POSSIBLE A UNE FILLE COURAGIEUSE

J'ai commencé l'école primaire à L'EP KAKUKU de Bibokoboko à une distance de dix km de mon village.J'avais commencé mes études à l'age de dix ans à cause d'une handicape physique de mon pied gauche.Ce pied avait été paralysé suite à la poliomiélite.Chez nous il n'avait pas de vaccin contre la polio ,à cette époque mes parents m'apportaient dans une chambre de prière parcequ'ils ne savaient pas la maladie dont je souffrais.Il n'y avait pas de médicaments au centre de santé de mon village.Ceci à conduit à ce que je sois véritablement paralisée par la polio.
Avec cet handicape il était difficile d'aller à l'école surtout que chez nous il n'y a pas de routes.je partais à pieds.Les autres couraient et me laissaient seule en court de route de l'école.Je devais me reveiller à cinq heure pour aller à l'école.Quand il pleuvait je ne pauvais pas aller à l'école.
J'ai été détérminée à étudier et surtout à faire les sciences infirmières pour aider les autres qui souffrent.Je ne voudrais pas que les autres souffrent comme moi qui avais souffert par manque de médicaments et d'infirmier capable de me donner des soins contre la polio.
Au jourd'hui je suis à l'université ; je compte terminer mes études l'an prochain pour devenir une infirmière dans un santre de santé.
Je suis très contente de devenir membre de cette communauté world pulse qui me permet d'apprendre l'informatique gratuitement et de decouvrir le courage des autres filles et femmes à travers le monde.

Everything is possible to a courageous girl

I began elementary school in L’EP KAKUKU de Bibokoboko which was 10 kilometers from my village. I started school at the age of 10, because of a physical handicap with my left foot. This foot had been paralyzed after a bout of poliomielite. At that time, there was no vaccine against polio available to us, and my parents brought me to a prayer room, at a loss to know what was afflicting me. There was no medicine at the health center of my village. This resulted in my becoming paralyzed by polio.

With this handicap, it was truly difficult to get to school, especially because where I came from there were no roads, and I had to get up at five o’clock in the morning to get to school. When it rained I wasn’t able to go to school.
I was determined to study and especially wanted to complete science and nursing studies in order to help others who were suffering. I didn’t want others to suffer like I had, due to the lack of medicine and medical care.
Today, I am at the university, and will finish my studies next year to become a nurse in a medical center.
I am very happy to become a member of this community at World Pulse which allows me to learn to work with computers, and to discover the courage of girls and women around the world.
