Ghetto Stories

In many stories of successful people, we have seen that they have formal education background. Not all have had smooth educational background but rough and tough.

In our world today, education is entitled to everybody no matter the age or gender. It is common to see old people going back to school to complete their studies.

Education is really great and opens many doors to success. Education is one thing that puts us all in the same level no matter the social class one is in. Testimonies have been given on how education has opened doors for many. It is up to an individual to decide to learn, one cannot be forced to learn.

If you have witnessed how education opens doors, I bet you will dedicate yourself to your studies and decide to work hard and smart.

Education is the key to success. It is a key to success if one knows what he or she has gone to do in school.

Going to school or actually learning opens ones’ brain to a certain level that only education can. They say being born poor is not anyone’s fault but dying poor is. Though I might not fully agree with this statement, it somehow also makes sense.

Education is expensive. Many unfortunate families face the lack of school fees for children to stay in school and study. That’s why many drop out.

Thanks to Wings to Fly sponsorship a project of Mastercard foundation and Equity Bank, many unfortunate kids have the chance to education. It has sponsored many kids in different parts of the country. A friend of mine got this sponsorship and now he is in Mount Kenya University studying medicine under the same sponsorship. The organization sponsors one till the level of university he or she wants.

I personally believe that education is the key to success if one knows what he or she is good at, likes and wants to do in future.
