Standing Up For Girls To Be Respected - Kibera Girls LitClub Featured on Huffington Post

Mercy Ajuma, LitWorld Girls LitClub Member
My name is Mercy Ajuma. I am 12 years old. I love to read. My best sport is netball. I come from a family of seven. I am the second-youngest in our family. I stay with my mum and my siblings. My favorite colours are pink and purple. My ambition in life is to become an air hostess or a TV presenter. The reason why I want to become an air hostess is because that job really inspires me. I would love to know the world. My dreams are to go to a good high school after primary education. I do support girls' rights to have an education. Girls do have a right to education, but most of them are being denied their rights. Some are even forced into early marriages. When we unite together, and are given this opportunity, our voices shall be heard and we will be able to end corruption. I stand up for girls to appreciate themselves in every way, even if they are disabled or unloved. In some families, girls are unwanted. They believe that girls bring bad luck to the family. Girls are the mother nature of the world. So if you are a girl, appreciate who you are.
