Jennifer, A girl with dream!

"I would like to tell my fellow teenagers, is to always do what they love. In this way, it brings warm happiness knowing what you do satisfies you".

Jennifer Wakarura Gatheca, 16 years old Tanzanian. She is currently in Form 4 going to Form 5. She is passionate about community service and Feminism. For a long time, she always knew she was privileged compared to that one girl somewhere else, lucky to be raised in a safe environment; go to school; etc

All this and understanding that some girls don't have what she has, or that are exposed to violence, keeps her motivated in her movement for change. A change where girls will be accepted for being girls and not restricted to things simply because of their gender. She March for a gender equality movement, so as both girls and boys can live in a safe environment.

She got appointed to be in the Adolescent Girls Advisory Council for Global Fund for Women.

What makes her to be that kind of girl?

Jennifer said, "I am today, is mainly my family. Am grateful that they raise me to appreciate the things I have and strive to help others with their needs. As well as, I think it's safe to say my experiences have helped mould an important part of me".

Her first internship at a cafe and my second one with Msichana Initiative. They have given her a glimpse of what it is, she want to do with her future and that is helping people and inspiring others to do the same.


During the Pandemic!

During this pandemic, she is currently homeschooling so from Monday to Friday, she usually have classes up until 3pm, thereafter she spends time with my family. And in the weekends, she watches her favourite movies with her family and well as exercising every now and then.


What can you tell your fellow teenager?

"I would like to tell my fellow teenagers, is to always do what they love. In this way, it brings warm happiness knowing what you do satisfies you. For instance, I like community service and I'm passionate about feminism, I never get tired of doing them all, because it's what I love to do. If you like cars, baking, cooking maybe or even drawing, go for it".

 "You can never go wrong with picking what you love doing. Doing what I love is definitely one of the best things that have ever happened to me".
