Albright

Hallo friends
My name is Albright Ayoyi I am in class 3, stay in Kibera and a member of school for the girls.
I am struggling with my studies so that I can fulfill my dream of becoming a neural surgeon.
I like skipping rope, running and swimming.
I also like staying with my friends who understand me, I like flowers because they represent love.
My favourite food is pumpkin and vegetable, Ugali and sukuma wiki which is widely eaten in Kenya.
I also like chips and sausage but not so much because they can make me unhealthy.
I like my self but I do encounter small problems like being mocked by my friends because of my hand.
but I want to overcome my challenge and become a neural surgeon so that I can help people who are just like me.
School fee is also my challenge due to the poverty surrounding our area.
I thank God because of School for the girls because of it I can be able to study and also my friend s can do so.
I will be glad for your support and you can even come to visit us here in Kibera.

Welcome
Albright

Importance of reading

Some people find it difficult to read because they don't have interest in books or they are too lazy to do so.
But we should know more things about reading:

(1) Reading is an inspiration and a gift that human kind have.
through reading one may get inspiration due to the events that take place example Ben Carson's 'Think big' and Gifted 'hands' which can make some one feel good and worth.


(2) through reading you can also have a vision and through it you can be able to protect your self and to some extend have leadership qualities.
In this case if we consider Chinua Achebe's book 'Things Fall Apart 'and also a Swahili writer Ken Walibora in his book 'Siku Njema' which means a nice day.

(3) You can also gain some wisdom from literature for example in the 'big' book the bible King Solomon give wise words which can lead you.

(4) Through it you can also get a sign of togetherness and you can feel you belong, you can also feel you are loved, you can know your origin and also the origin of the world which some times become a difficult question to answer.

(5) Finally reading makes you younger than you have ever thought of.
For example in many cases you may get your teacher still young just like you left him/her 10 or 20 years ago and it is only because of reading.


"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them."
- Mark Twain (1835-1910)
Reading makes one great and rich.

Thanks

Why women remain to be good

In this world most people have negative attitudes towards women for example being viewed as inferior.
Although most women have emotional problems as a weakness but in contrary many things in this universe have been achieved by women
I have just tried think about How African women do take care of their young ones. I think without them we could not have been talking about the next African Generation, it could have also been impossible for men to take care of the kids.
In any case women who are from the pastrolist community like the maasai here in Kenya they can walk for about 5 or 6 Kilometers searching for water, fire wood and at the same time holding their babies. To me that proof how strong women are.
Women in this world have achieved a lot for example the 2004 Nobel prize winner Wangare Mathai a woman who was and is still considering our environment.
From the beginning some people dint never took her words seriously only because she is a woman, but finally she became a role model to many.
Most women have tried to prove their leadership qualities for example in America Hillary Clinton has really tried to come up and she is a best model to many women.

Even if today is Aprils fools day I don't want people to be fooled the women are inferior.

Above is a picture of a maasai woman Holding a baby and selling the maasai beads at the same time
