My name is Grace Kenga, am 15 years and in class seven at St. Bernadette Mary School. My family has a mother and 14 children. My father dead and one of my brother. The death of my father made me to give up in life. My mother goes to the market to sell mangoes so that she can get money to feed us. (She is our bread winner)
At St. Bernadette Mary school I am given all learning materials, uniform, shoes, exercise books, text books, pen and others, this has given hope in life and happiness. I also thank you all for giving me a chance to learn because my other siblings are not learning.
I like playing football because it is my hobby. I started playing football at Mtepeni grounds with the help of our coach teacher Md. Elizabeth were she decided to form a school team last year. I always enjoyed every Friday playing with others and I was encouraged.
When second term began we, were told that we will participate in the football competition, this was my first chance to play in a football competition and I felt it was my chance to practice my skills. We started at Mtomondoni Primary and I was lucky to be selected among a few from our school team for next level. I was very happy and this gave me more hope, I went back to Mtomondoni with a few chosen and again I proceeded the zonal competition at Shaurimoyo Primary and again qualified to the district level at Vipigo Primary.
I was very happy to have gone up to the district level, I have believe in my self and through practise I can do better than what I have done even one day to the national level.
I have known football is my life time hobby because I like it, it has made me have new friends, to go to places I had never been to.
I want to thank all the teachers, sponsors for this golden chance given to me to participate and show that I can make it.
