Destruction

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kisumu, Kenya
Map of DESTRUCTION Back in my schooling i was in high school.I can recall that i was a member of guidance an counselling,so i was given the opportunity to advice those in need.To be honest i was really appriccaiatve because this made me learn alot from my teachers and also students.I was known and this made my students come to me for any suitable advice that i could give.I was proud of myself for the kind of thing i did for my students with no exaggerations i was good at it. So there was anthertime when my friend bought me her friend who was so much in need.I dont know why she came to me but i guess she trusted me that mush.I never gave out peoples stories because t me that will be like betraying those who trusted me.The girl was almost five months pregnant and all she wanted was to talk with the school administration so that she can go home.To be honest was really moved by her story and to top it all it was painfull.She was just in form one and the child's father had denied the baby and was also oin form three.It was very difficult for her to bear all the embarrassment in school.It was such difficult issue but something had to be done.
