 Resty’s Story that forced her into Teenage motherhood

My name is Resty Nakyanzi, am 16 years old, I was in primary five before I got pregnant and it was during this lock down. My mother died a year back and my father started mistreating me, he started seeing me as a burden to him, he started telling me to find somewhere else to go. I was forced to leave home and went my auntie’s place, life was hard for me since my auntie was also struggling. In a bid to look for my basic needs, I ended up getting pregnant at this tender age. One of the biggest challenges I have faced with the motherhood status is that I still cannot believe that am a mother, I leave in self-denial and life is so difficult especially in supporting myself and my baby.

I would love to go back to school but my father’s cannot give me that chance. However If I ever get a second chance from any one, I would love to go and get a skill in tailoring, something that I believe can help me support my child since even his father doesn’t take responsibility. It’s therefore my appeal to be given a second chance if possible to rectify my mistakes.

Thank for the Opportunity of sensitizing us about reproductive health, if i had known this earlier, maybe I would have been patient and would not be a mother today at this age.
