"VOF Week 2: (Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option)."
"Try and fail, but don't fail to try.”
I like this quote. My life starts from scratch. Each scratch makes me to be strong and more active. I had born and grow up in Addis. I am the first child for my parents. As a woman I face a lot of problems in my life. But till now I am not giving up for those problems. I am always said ‘if you are women you must win your self’. In my internal life there are a lot of my personal problems and inter personal conflict like lack of thinking, cultural problems…That enforce me to be under all social problems and to be demoralized. So if I win myself I can know about me well and I can change others thinking through my personal life experiences. I can refer myself to change others life. I am working in different women’s organizations voluntarily to support other women’s want to empower women’s to create opportunities for their sustainable livelihood. I have BA but I want to see others when they got more than BA.I am very interested to empower elder women’s. For long year they were under their husbands control and they miss a lot of opportunities in their life. In Ethiopia when one woman marries she will be under her husband control and she will leave her all personal plans down. Every thing is planed, leads and goes by her husband permission. She always took little money to feed her children and her husband. She is a responsible person to manage every thing at home. So these and that problems block women’s to live far from every activity. So I am happy to empower them and train them to teach new things. For example my mother she can’t to read and write because when she was grade 7 student at her age 16 she was pregnant. She stopped every thing for the sacke of me and my father. So I have the responsibility to teach and change others women’s life. Some time my story like easy to say today then tomorrow. I pass a lot of challenges in my life but they make me to be strong enough to help others. I am starting new life and dreams now I am on the way to make a story for the future.
