Turning my dreams into a reality

Beltivate
Posted February 7, 2019 from Cameroon

I am a Cameroonian by birth,Lived and grew up with a single Parent(my mum),together with my 3 other siblings and happened to be the only child who was by Grace lucky to see the four walls of a classroom till I had my Advanced Level Certificate.         At age 9, together with our mum we starting hugging perishable food items to get a means of survival,this aspect of struggling so hard to earn a living made me strong and alert life wasn't a bed of Roses,The love and care shown to us by our mum despite her difficult is that never seen.My mum will work farms for payment,mould  blocks and still joined us to sell in the market just so we get a means of survival and to put a smile on our faces by providing some of our daily needs.      With the numerious hardship I went into deep thoughts thinking what I really can do to make this my mum proud and happy to have at least had a daughter,and found no better answer than going to school and be educated,This was my drive till I acquired my Advanced Level certificate.                                              It didn't only end there,around November this 2018,I almost lost all my hopes and courage then came a friend I met on Facebook who unleash World Pulse and it's miraculous doing to me, immediately I did inquiries on how I could join and make my voice be heard,to be honest it has been a blessing to me.With the encouragement I get,I know all hope is not lost,I know some day I will find my self again in school like others are going,I know some day my mum will smile because of me,I still believe some day my siblings will find themselves in school with the turn around of things.                           My mum I can say is an example of a mother never seen as she sacrifice her all to see us all alive today,she will barely wear any good cloths on her,shoes or have a good thing of her own just because she sacrifice all to see her children are ok and fine.This to me has been a blessing and a drive to making it successful in life,My mum showed me the power carried by a woman not by words but by her action and degree of responsibility.This to me is worth sharing as our mums love dwells in us.World pulse has giving me life and for this I can't say much but express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the warm welcome and handling I have gotten here,Wisdom they say can't be bought and that's what's world pulse has in some way thought me,As I have learned to move ahead without looking at my challenge and difficulties.

Morning Beltivate. Thank you for finding WP, for being inspired to write your story to share with us!! What courage and wisdom you have and your mum must already be so proud of you. I wonder, when you attend the school of your dreams, what will you be focused on?
Are you aware of the free classes online for a variety of topics.
