“Being a physically challenged person is often difficult. I attended a school for the physically challenged as I am disabled in both legs and need to use walking aids in order to move from one place to another.
After two operations, my legs don’t really function, and so although life was difficult growing up, I had to adapt.
After taking a course in secretarial studies, I was lucky enough to be employed by the Government as a typist.
I joined Pamoja Dance Group in 2006 and my life changed. Thanks to the fellow members of Pamoja, I now accept myself the way I am.”
