Yolanda Nyaba, Class of 2016

 

“Thank you for opening my eyes so I can see differently, for emphasizing the fact that I am someone and I am capable. You have given me a key to unlock my future success.

All my life I felt like everything was falling apart. My family thought I was useless. I felt like I was cursed. I have been a sad person even though I had camouflage over for the world not to see my sadness. I knew this day would come where I will be proud of myself and believe that I can. I am now at my happiest moments of my life because of you.

My future is brighter than the light of day. You have helped me to overcome my fears. With your guidance, your love, your warmth and teaching I am going places. What I have learned at ICT will be my souvenir and I will share it to the generation after me.

Because of you I can stand on my own and be firm, confident, because I feel stronger than I have ever been, smarter because of the knowledge you have given me.

Because of you I am not afraid to be myself, to be proud of me.  I know that I will be able to put food on the table for my family.  Because of you my son will grow up being proud of me.

Thank you for believing in me, for giving me a chance to be a member of this amazing family.  Thank you for being my sense of direction, my genie in a bottle. You have given our lives a whole new meaning.  Because of you, I am brave to say I am, I will be, and I can be anything I want to be.

Thank you ICT.  There can never be enough words to show my gratitude.  I love you.
