BACKGROUND
I have been raised by single parent, my mother, following my father's death when I was a little kid. In my family, I am the last born and we are six in number; one brother and four sisters. My mother do not have specified work, rather she does part-time jobs, like cultivating the neighbouring farm, when she is needed, and earn a little money to meet some demands; also she raises two goats at our home place. My previous education was not as hard as my current one, simply because I have gone through government schools whose fee is somehow affordable.
WHY
I am inspired to be a nurse so that I can not only save people's lives by treating them but also I can educate them on matters concerning their health; for example educating them about maintaining proper sanitation so as to prevent disease like malaria which is among leading cause of death in my country. Additionally, educating people plays a greater role in fighting and preventing any disease; and so I will be doing this so as to save my community. My dream job is to become a nurse. By being a nurse, I will be able to perform multiple roles concerning human health, all of which are aiming at disease prevention, control and treatment; and hence save the lives of the people.
INTERESTS
I am interested to read books. Example of the book i like mostly is "I Can, I Must, I Will: The Spirit Of Success; By Late, Dr. Reginald Mengi. And also, I prefer audio books, especially when I'm tired, example Late, Dr. Myles Munroe speeches. Moreover, I do like watching movies, particularly discovery and documentary movies.

In the first semester we conducted community outreach. With empowered community with health knowledge as well as proper hygienic practices which promotes health. Our approach was "From every single family to the whole community". So we started this from single family followed to the whole community. This community based health activity has added a significant value in my carrier of nursing as follows; 1. I got contacted with a real community from which my clients are living, it took me to understand a lot about community health needs. 2. Before, I was not well aware as right now, how health education is very important to the community. 3. Also, from various real health related circumstances I encountered in my community, it increased my passion to study because I have noticed how my community need me. On the picture it is my colleagues and I.

As a change maker, I am planning to engage in health education programs to rural areas, and perform basic screening services to poor families. On the photo I've prepared my self to participate in operation as team member to perform my function of scrubbing nurse.

WHAT I DID;
Was health education on "Safe Menstrual Hygiene"

WHERE I DID;
We did it at one of the Dodoma interior village called Ngo'ng'ona.

WHY I DID;
Due to basically two reasons
1\. Such maturing girls in the rural areas have little knowledge on hygiene as they
approaches to adolescence; this increases risk of getting reproductive system
diseases (if they do not wash themselves well during menstruation); and some girls
are even dropping academically due to psycho-stress as they see menstrual, since
it's something new at that time in their age.
2\. Parents seems to be distancing themselves from talking with their adolescents
on these matters concerning hygiene and reproductive health issues; some
believing that those adolescents will fortunately know by themselves; which is bad
idea..!!

HOW I DID;
We got ourselves together as a team of threes students; we started from each house of the village by educating parents and adolescents. And we finally finished by going directly at the school where we contacted with 11-13 years girls and provide them with good knowledge about safe menstrual hygiene.

IT'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE SOCIETY;
Contribution of this outreach activity to Ng'ong'ona have extremely proved great because;
1\. It has break barrier between adolescents and their parents; therefore have ensure good reproductive health to girls and hence we hope for their good performances at the class.

2\. It got both maturing and adolescents into confidence about themselves, thus
they can be comfortable in learning even during their menstrual periods.
