I live with 7 siblings and we live with both our parents but they are unstable financially and after senior four I could not continue with school to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher so I resorted to working as a home help meanwhile.
With little words the reason for becoming a doctor, I want to save people’s lives because we are all brothers and sisters. When I hear stories of fellow adolescents losing life due to teenage pregnancy I feel bad. I know I make a good doctor.
I am the third born of the six children of my mom. I have a dream of becoming a teacher teaching science in primary school when I complete my studies.
My father abandoned us and our mum has no job. She is in her home village. She left me with grandma.
I am proud to be a girl but I feel bad that I am unable to continue with education at this level due to extreme poverty our family is living in. My mom started looking after us solely after the death of our beloved father. Since then, she has done her best but things have not been busy. We have lived in a shack for 5 years now and before that we used to live in a shared dormitory in the slum which was crowded and even though we stay in a miserable house it is hard for my mum to raise the rent.
I live with my grand mom, she is no longer working due to her age.
