Today my dream is within my grasp

I was so unsure of where my life was going before the iKasi Skills course. Today, I know that my story matters and that I am worthy of a shot at life. My advice: if you apply, know that your life, mindset and goals will most likely change or shift. When I joined, it was in hopes that I could pursue my dream of writing stories and assist the youth within our communities. Today, that goal is within full grasp.
