I hail from a broken family and my mother and father have never stayed in the same house as me. They were already married to other people and had other families when they got me and could therefore not allow me in their families. I have grown up with my paternal aunt and her children. Her husband left her because of the big family she had and we were living from hand to mouth and were often faced with hunger. My aunt's job is helping people do their casual work like washing clothes, digging and cleaning up their compounds. Me and my other siblings do the same over the holidays to get upkeep. My aunts financial condition completely went out of her hands after the death of my father in 2017 as he used to help her with paying my school fees.
I chose this bachelor's degree to gain insights on human habits and a foundation on behavioural science that will foster my personal development and knowledge to tackle people's standards of living in my community and the country at large. My 5 year plan includes pursuing a post graduate degree in social work and obtain a doctorate in it so as to fulfil my lifelong dream of mentoring others. I intend to do a 5- month short course in guidance and counselling in health to advance my skills, provide both emotional and financial support to the victims of sexual abuse and drug abuse or other adversities encountered by these individuals in life. Furthermore, I love to write articles to help create awareness on health pressing issues like sexual harassments, segregation which will surface in different secondary school magazines in my region and other adolescent or youth platforms. Also patterning with other organisations with similar goals so as to have a wider platform for our community health sensitization, innovation among other agenda.
One of my core values is impacting the community. This inspired me and others to start up a community based organisation in our community. Most of my free time, I volunteer to help people access their needs which is a very great work to our community.
