Planing and Decission making
Hipaingba Gloria, I am a destitute 18-year-old girl who lost the father when I was only 6, and have been brought up by my single mother, along with 7 other siblings born after me, two of whom died at an early age. I was born in Yangiri Payam, Ezo County, WES, South Sudan, a rural village 100 kilometers from Yambio. My parents moved to Yambio and settled in Ikpiro village, confident of being able to grow above our abject poverty. All our hopes for recovery ended when my father died. Totally unprepared for life as a single mother, my mother was fortunate to find work as pancake maker, barely managing to raise not enough to provide one meal per-day to her 5 surviving children. I managed to stay most of the time in my neighbors’ homes; i and Nagene our neighbor became friends and class mates and, in the end, together with other neighbors we decided to flee to Uganda. I want to be a teacher when I grows up- and that is the energy pushing to struggle day and night. Thanks to the efforts of Community Skills Development for sponsoring me till I completed Primary School. I am still in search for a person of good will. My desire is to at least attain a University first degree and that could help me help my community back in South Sudan. South Sudan needs some elite to lead the Country in a direction for peace, development and the change of mindset. All my other siblings are not attending any school and have not completed primary school, and so, I have been surrounded by lack of hope, which for me is just one more incentive to keep struggling harder than anybody on earth.
Its not easy to rich the pick unless God is on yourside
