Perhaps the "P" and "F" accent is the key to our recognition.

Perhaps they believe we must not be over ambitious.

Perhaps they look down on us because of our dressing code without fully understanding what modesty means. 

Perhaps they believe girls education is not as important as that of her male counterpart.

Perhaps they assume being homely is the only means to be a wife material. 

Little did they know that every tribe has its own pronunciation incompetence. 

Little did they know being homely, being modest, being reserved, being educated and 
intelligent are Perquisites of being a Hausa Girl. 


We have to make our own mistakes,

We have to learn our own lessons,

We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore, 

Until we finally understand for ourselves that  knowing is better than wondering, 

That waking is better than sleeping, 
That even the biggest failure,

Even the intractable mistake is the hell out of not trying.

With all the challenges I believe right and wrong answers coexist in every decision. Wise people make a choice and make it the right answer while foolish people regret the decision and make it wrong. There is no right answer in life. There is only the process to make it the right answer.
