Empowering myself

Myself and students

In August 2016, i lost my job ,just at the time i was planning to empower ten women to start a small scale business and its like i wont be able to survival because i have the type of partner that only care for the kids. I have always been a dogged woman who don't like to depend on anyone , i stated buying and supply in a little way.Later in 2016 we moved from where we where living to our own house in a not well developed area and i was faced with what to do.I have always love to teach, i took up a teaching job and also enrolled to have certification in teaching,so i enrolled for a PGDE  (post graduate in Education) .I struggled to pay the fees and i was glad that am able to start and finish the course,because its involve traveling every weekend.

I am sharing my story, to say to other women out there that we should not relent in our effort to make ourselves better. Dont wait for a man to have your undergraduate  or postgraduate degrees. Stand up and stand tall in all you purpose to do.

Going through the course gave me more understanding about Education, as a course and as a process of  imparting knowledge and has given me abroad knowledge about my initiative which really believe in educating the girl child.Teaching has made me to meet a lot of student ,interacting , sharing their problems ,encouraging and motivating them.

In the light of these,i am organizing a program for the youth in my community .Titled-Who am  I.Coming up August 2018.

Hello sister ,thank you so much for sharing your efforts and struggles in life.women have to be independent and I believe they must not depend soly on men for everything in life.No woman should stop education because of a man. Keep up with the good works and I know your community is blessed having you.

Hello Olubee, congratulations on achieving your dream to become a Teacher. I am also a teacher and judging from the challenges you had to overcome to become one, I can immediately tell that teaching was your vocation from the onset.
I understand the way you feel and the overwhelming joy that flows when you impact your children and it takes only a passionate teacher to feel that way.
I am happy that you made the decision to engage in self empowerment. Learning is not a stage in life, but rather a way of life.
Keep up the good work!

Quick question... Is your partner now in support of your ambitions?

Dear Olubee,

One of the most effective ways that has been put in place to keep women from living free lives, is to not allow girls to get educations and women to have paid work. Sharing your story on how you kept leaping over hurdles with great determination is powerful news. The young people who will meet you will be lucky and no doubt inspired to get such wisdom and encouragement from you. I look forward to your news in August!

In sisterhood,
Tam
