I was born in a good, hardworking family. My parents tried to give me the best they could; education, food and love. My parents told me that I had to study hard in school to get a good future. So studies were very important for me.
In my primary and early secondary school, I did well. However, when I became 16 years old, I studied science subjects that were not suitable for me and I failed badly. I could not change my grades for almost 2 years eventhough I tried. I started to become depressed and I felt hopeless and scared for the future and started to argue a lot with my parents. I started to search in my heart for God, hoping that religion could help me find peace.
It was at this time that my sister started going to church. One day, she invited me to go with her. I went with her and I met some really nice people who became my good friends. At first, I just went every Sunday and learnt about Jesus. After a few months, I realised that I had to make a decision; whether to truly believe in Jesus or not. I thought to myself, “If God is real, I think He will be like Jesus. He would be willing to sacrifice His life for us because He loves us.” I then prayed to Jesus and asked Him to forgive me for my sins and mistakes and become my God and I would follow Him forever.
After I became a Christian, I started to read the Bible everyday and I started to help in church, playing the piano. I changed a lot; I started to become more loving to other people and I no longer felt afraid for my future as I believed that God would look after me always. I still continued to struggle with my studies but God helped me to get enough good marks to start in college doing new subjects. With God’s help, I finished university and graduated with a Law degree. I am so thankful to Jesus for how He has changed me, my life and my future.
