I know I’ve talked about having people who inspire me like here and here. But a hero is a little bit different. When I’m inspired by someone its usually their work that will ultimately influence the way I do mine. A hero is someone of another level.
[heer-oh] noun, plural he·roes;
As a young girl, Akech Santa was told that women were only meant for motherhood or prostitution and was thus deprived of hope, opportunity and education. Today, Santa is proving the naysayers wrong by supporting herself through her work as a crocheter. She is also using the money to support her children and hopes to use the money she earns to educate them through university.
DREAM FOR THE FUTURE
“My future dream is to see my children through all levels of school so that they might have bright, successful futures. I would also like to start my own textiles business so that I can continue to have reliable work after I leave the program.”
“Love comes from within. It cannot be forced and it certainly cannot be bought.”
MESSAGE TO KKi
“Thank you to KKU and its supporters for the work that they have done in my life. May God bless you abundantly.”
I find this woman to be extremely inspiring and empowering. She stood up for herself and proved people that they were wrong. She is now another hero, among many of the women that work for KKU. There are so many inspiring stories about those whose lives have been affected by this program, you should take the time to read at least a few.
Who are your heroes?
