My name is Kasacha Sharon and I am sixteen years old. I have both parents and there are seven children in my family. Life has not been so easy on our side but thank God that we still survive.
In 2012, my dad lost his job and we had nothing. My education first had to standstill since there was no money to pay my school fees. Sometimes we used to go without food and yet we had the little ones to take care of.
My dad wanted to take us back to the village but I stood up as a girl and encouraged him. I told him how I was going to lose my education hence lose my future. Sure enough my dad had understanding and he decided to work hard. I also created a small business to see that our family could survive.
Since no situation is permanent, my parents managed to get money and took me and my siblings back to school. We got our own house and I really thank The Almighty God for that because I made a prayer for it.
I, therefore, want to encourage other girls out there who are passing through the same situation not to lose hope since THERE IS NO SITUATION THAT IS PERMANENT. Try and stand up as a girl.
