It had never been in my mind that girls from other cultures experience the same challenges that we face in our community but when I heard the stories from the different cultures during the digital storytelling workshop, I felt so motivated. It was a nice experience learning about touching stories from other cultures and how to make my own real life story. One of the great things I learnt is that one has to work extra hard to come up with a precious success in everything they do. It also includes being honest to yourself and determined. Nothing good comes easy.

First kick

My story is about my first football kick. I was discouraged by laughter from experienced players but I did not give up because I knew practice makes perfect. Through football, I became a leader and I am helping others to become responsible leaders as well.
