My story.

Alaine2020
Posted June 23, 2020 from Kenya

 I am a Kenyan lady, 22 years pursuing a diploma in social work and community development year two. I was raised by a single mother under  very hectic environment that is aslum. Being a first born in a family of 5 hasn't been  easy for me. I started hustling as young as class six like I would do anything legal just yo help my mother to raise my siblings.  There were  times people would take advantage of  me maybe for  being a small girlchild. When I was growing life became even more worse. I got pregnant in fourth year but this fod not stop me from pursuing my dreams. I would always wish to lift someone as I was lifted from grassroot to where I am. 

I am an aspiring social advocate involved in social causes that change the lives of people especially young children who live in slums and other deplorable environments. I am a life enthusiast who spreads the love and laughter to those around me.

I am also  an aspiring social worker who lives within communities, share their happiness, struggles aspirations and stories.

I love being around children, get to know about them hear their stories because children are a true reflection of the society the innocent unfiled souls that still sees good in people.

I am a foodie, I love experimenting with different foods, because I believe food is part of our culture and through food I get to know and enjoy about different cultures.

My friends call me Alain lover of food and music.

I love good music as I believe music is food to my  soul, it allows me to unwind and let my air down....
