Hey springsters! My name is KaKhanya, 13. I want to tell you about a wonderful friend of mine called mother. I appreciate her, not only because she gave me life, but also because she looks out for me. My mom supports all my dreams. She encourages me to follow my heart and my mind. When I feel weak, she reminds me that I’m strong! I want to be a social worker and an actor. My mom doesn’t make me feel confused about this. Instead, she supports me, and wants me to explore my interests. My relationship with my mom is one of the most important in my life. As a young girl finding her way, I need guidence. And who better to give it than an adult who loves me, and has my interest at heart?
