The world is a better place with education

I am ready for the exams”, says 18 years old Khadija. She is a Form 4 student at Alliance Girls High School. “I want to perform well; it is about my life and want to raise above my current status. Being sponsored gives me even more motivation to perform well”.

 

Like many other young women she loves swimming and traveling. Traveling might also become part of her future career. “I would like to study marine engineering with focus on piloting. Currently only three women in Kenya do that. I find that very interesting and it would give me the chance to travel to other countries.” However the final decision is not done and she still considers other options. “My friends and even teachers tell me to become a journalist. I am a good communicator and can articulate myself very well. They also say that I bring life to stories.” We are sure she will choose the right subject when time comes.

If she talks about education she becomes very passionate. “Education is the key to life; the world is a better place with education. I can’t imagine a life without knowledge.”

It is true, she brings life to stories!
