Growing up was fun, Being the first child and grandchild. You have attention of every body Except from one person, Grandma. Strange, isn’t it? Soon I realize Mom and Grandma Were acting mouse and cat, but why? Grandma had her choice of a daughter in law. My Dad had his own choice of a wife, my mother. As the first child, Grandma’s wrath fell on me, As I grew up, I came face to face with reality. My grandma called me “Big head for nothing” That a “name given to me was wasted” I had had enough of this and with determination, I wanted change this but how? I realized God knew and loves me Because I AM ME.
I excelled and joined Secondary school But this didn’t hinder her rage. The first girl to do that in our family, I felt like a heroine. The first girl to join high school I was a heroine. The first girl to attain university education. I conquered!
To the young girls, never give up the future is bright. I am a living example. I testify that all things are possible through God. With no regret and no bitterness. Am thankful. Things are not the same now, there is change. I want to see more change; In our attitudes, In society, In families, In our hearts. Each one of us can do something, To bring about this change.
