I celebrate you oh my rural woman.

Your strength is endless. Your search is endless Your products satisfactory   Wonderful woman Creative woman Your endless efforts guard humanity Harshness of the sun and the rain gives you no limitation.

You are a strong tool of peace and endurance.

A remarkable virtuous woman. Age does not limit you from feeding the multiplying population. The pride of mother nature here. The figure in which everyone depend on

Your serve humanity without judgement You save life's without regretted. You fear not for you are pure

A blessed woman A blessed mother A blessed sister

You are all in one. Your role is important Oh my rural woman

Dear Foka,
I was raised by a rural woman and I am glad that was the case. She raised me in resilience and the fact that I grew up in a rural community never stopped me from dreaming. I moved from a rural community to the top medical school in my country. One month ago, I attended a two-weeks leadership course at the Johns Hopkins Blomberg School of Public Health. And guess what? While everybody expected I will remain in the US, I packed my bags and returned home because I know I have a responsibility to play in the lives of the younger girls who are still struggling to grow out of the limitations surrounding them in rural Cameroon. I am still a rural girl and that will not change even if I visit the White House every week!!!!!!!! Yassssss I am a rural woman.
