name is Chileshe. I am
17 years old, turning 18 on the 13th of March. I finished my
Grade Twelve in 2016 and now I’m planning to go to University to
study Social Work.
I came to Kasisi in 2014 when I
was in Grade Ten, during this time I was going through a lot of
health problems such that I missed school a lot, I often thought
I would never finish school. I was so sad but all thanks to the
Lord who came to me through the kind hearted loving sisters at
Kasisi who made all the medical procedures needed and I was
better in less than nine months.
I agree that the medicine gave
me worked but I would say the love, care and support they
showered me with healed me. I was so happy, free-minded and I
gained weight fast. Not only was I happy about my recovery but I
was schooling at Kasisi Girls Secondary School which is a very
good school. That made me happier than ever:
Kasisi is a very big family
with children of all ages, I come from a family where I am the
only child, no sibling and so this makes me a shy person when it
comes to making new friends, I remember thinking I wouldn’t make
friends and I was right; instead of friends I made family,
sisters, brothers and loving mothers that will stay in my heart
Living in Kasisi has also
taught me how to be responsible and caring to the young ones, Sr
Mariola always encourages us to be responsible because it will
help us to grow into good people.
I discovered a talent I never
knew I had, there is a saying that people with strong fingers
are the ones to play a guitar and for me with weak and soft
fingers I had no chance of playing it, so I thought but here in
Kasisi everything is possible if you believe. I was encouraged
by Sr Mariola and a certain Father Bogdan to play the guitar and
I did so, I played it and till now I am still playing it and I
actually love it. Same with the piano, I did not know I could
learn it but I did and I am so happy all thanks to my Kasisi
Kasisi is a lovely home and it
will always be in my heart for as long as I live I love it and I
will always treasure this home in my life and I pray to our
heavenly Father that he may bless Kasisi and everyone in here.
I love Kasisi.
