For some us, going to school is a responsibility and a rather basic thing to do.
However, for many, it is a luxury and a sure way to break the poverty cycle.
When Louis Faith first got pregnant at 14 years old in the 2009, she was forced to dropout of school.
After having the child Louis wanted to go back to school but she couldn’t afford the fees.
She decided to start hawking to raise funds for her and her child’s upkeep and also save some money to pay for her fees.
But then she got pregnant again – she was living with her baby daddy at the time.
That pushed her back to school time table a bit further.
Plans of going back to school after the second child was suspended again when she got pregnant the third time.
However, Louis still haboured the dream of going back to school.
She later left her baby daddy to pursue her dreams
With the encouragement of others, Louis enrolled at a Junior High School where she prepared for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
She passed that and now she is a student at the Mawuli Senior High School in the Volta Region.
Louis’ perseverance and tenacity brought her here will guide her to pursue her dream of becoming a midwife.
Watch Louis tell her story below:
Good luck, Louis.
