My name is Bridgit. I am sixteen years old. I am in form three (Junior). I am the second born in my family of three.
In school I carry out eight subjects: Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Business Studies and Christian Religious Education. My easier subjects are Mathematics and Business Studies while the subjects that challenges me is Chemistry.
Going to school is an advantage because we go to make our future bright and also we learn some social morals that help us in life. Now that schools are closed, there are more disadvantages, because most of the students and pupils have engaged in drug abuse and early pregnancy.
I am thankful for Dignity4Girls and my family who help empower me, especially during these difficult times. To me personal empowerment means to gain confidence in myself, increase my degree of self determination, and to take control of my life. This helps me to make good decisions on how to handle certain situations.
During my free time I always play, relax and do house chores. The radio that was offered to me helps me most when there is no electricity and sometimes (I) listen to educational channels.
Now that schools are closed, the assistance that I need is guidance in education, as I wait the re-opening of schools.
