As you all know me, am the only girl child in the family with 7 boys.
In my place, if one hears of that, they will always call you all sorts of good names and words and etc. They will always call you a lucky one. Even some other funny words like " Kati ka kibiliti" which means ( the only match stick in the match box) so that means, if that only match stick in the match box is mishandled in the fire lighting process, one won't have the fire lit.
However, being one girl among boys in the family is quite a disadvantage especially if you don't interacin much with friends. Personally, I have found psychological challenges in my life. First of all, I have a mother who tolerates no nonsense, she has great restrictions on me ever since my childhood. My parents always prevented me from participating in politics, games, MDD etc in my school times and we all know the disadvantages of that some of which are, low self-esteem, confidence, one can't even discover herself etc. It always hurt me but nothing much to do. Ever since my childhood, I've been having visions and goals besides persuing my career. The biggest challenge I face is that my parents only focus on academics, when they hear you say anything rather than that, they think of you otherwise which isn't the case.
My vision is always to become a strong woman who empowers girls but I have been facing challenges because I had no one to listen and lift me up to attain my dreams. I would always check out strong women's quotes online and that's how I got to know the World Pulse group through online research. I therefore appreciate the founders of the World Pulse group and am very sure, while am here, I shall reach my destination.
"My Vision is my Mission"
Parents ought to consider their children's visions and goals not only that but also encourage and support them, provided the goals are productive.
