Since childhood as a girl I had low self esteem as a result of hard conditions of life. I suffered from depression within the age of 9 to 16 my classmates made fun of me when ever school tuition was mentioned . I saw how my mother toiled in her farm to educate me. I was always out of school for lack of school fees, I stayed one academic year home because of lack of finances. I woke up one morning told and encouraged myself that circumstances does not define any body's fate applied for scholarship and was awarded. Work hard in school with the help of my mother and benefactors who gave scholarship to me. And I aspire to do more for myself as well as encourage other girls like me. Life is a race we shouldn't limit ourselves but keep being optimistic.
