Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Pressure

Many youths drop out of school just because of pressure.There is much pressure around us especially youths between 16-17 years especially in the ghetto.They wanted to wear nice expensive clothes and of course girlfriends or boyfriends cannot miss.You will found some youths going to work instead of going to school in the name of hustling some are even involved in robbery just to get money and to please others.We should act according to our agge if its school day then let us go to school and if it is hustling time let us go.We should not get involved in things that are above us.I have done many research and noticed that many youthds are droppipng out of school especially secondary and if you investigate the reason you will find out that its the same thing that am talking about "PRESSURE"
