I am an ambitious young girl and I love to make my dreams come true.Yesterday I attended a birthday party of a little girl who loves me very much until these parents start to call me godmother. The girl in question is called Patricia, she celebrated her birthday of 3 years. she is very clever you can not imagine, she can speak everything, she had not yet started studies but when you ask her the question if she studies she answers she studies at lestonac which is a catholic school located in the South- Kivu in DRC. She already knew how to count from 1 to 15 without being at school, she also knows how to spell all the five existing vowels. She's fantastic this little one. After the church I had to respond to his invitation for his birthday, when I got there I was surprised by the moderation which was new to me, I was a little afraid. To get out of that, I had to open the track with an interpretation of "growing up is saying I love you", a song that I shared last time on world pulse. I sang, the children were happy then they cheered at the end. After singing, I started to moderate the birthday ceremony and the children who were in the spotlight of their party with Patricia were really delighted. One big thing that surprised me after the party I got congratulations that I did not think if I can be able but also if I have such talent. I saw that I am improving a life for myself but also for the world.
