Resources: A mother’s advice to her ten-year-old daughter
During the interviews with women leaders on Wisdom Exchange Tv, I asked them to share their advice as if their daughter was ten-years-old today. Without hesitation, they replied with a clear, concise, and conscious response.
Here are some of their words of wisdom. You’re welcome to share them with your child as they enter the next stage of their life:
Dr Jennifer Riria (Kenya): “You must to go to school, get a skill that answers a vision that you want to be 20 years from now. Move towards that goal every year.”
Gladys Ogallo (Kenya): “Whatever you have to do, do it well so no one has to come up behind you to clean it up.”
Jane Wathome (Kenya): “Be focused. Understand who you are and focus on your strengths. Don’t let your weakness destabilize you and get in the way of her focus.”
Joanne Mwangi (Kenya): “You are wonderful and you can do anything.”
Joyce Muraya (Kenya): “Enjoy every stage of your life; don’t rush anything. You are made for greatness.”
Norah Odwesso (Kenya): “Follow your passion. Go for the highest goals. There are no limits; the only limits are the ones you put on yourself.”
Rehmah Kasule (Uganda): “Never ask why did this happen? Ask, how can we overcome it?”
Hellen Acham (Uganda): “Look at the talents you have, take up those talents.”
Yetnebersh Nigussi (Ethiopia): Be loud, proud and passionate.” “I want my child to be as loud as possible so people can hear what she has to say. Proud, express herself as someone who is very capable and unique. I want her to demonstrate she is someone who has a number of things to contribute to this world. Passionate, someone always moving forward.”
Samrawit Moges (Ethiopia): “Use this opportunity to educate yourself as much as possible.”
Tereza Mbire (Uganda): “Be a girl of integrity. Always tell the truth. Have a dream of success, and work towards that dream.”
