  1. Recalling the most cherished memory for your father figure. For some it may be when he was taking you to school, for others memories of when he taught you how ride a bike for others it may be when he took you to the beach, for others it is the ability to confide in somebody that won’t judge or stop loving you because of the mistakes you have made. A couple of days after my naming ceremony in 1999, my father travelled to Spain illegally through the sea and got there safely but then he cut all connections that he had with his family including me and my siblings . When a child is born, he or she is given a birth certificate, which provides information such as name, date and place of birth but most importantly it provides the names of the parents of the child. My father’s name was just there as a name to fill that space.

    As a child I would compare my life to my peers’. I would often go through all this hypothetical scenarios in my head thinking ” if my dad were here, I could be like all the other boys”. I was always optimistic about him coming back and when he finally came back in 2007, I had to go to Senegal and meet him. We spend one month there together and he disappeared again. I never thought that a father can abandon his children twice but my father did. My mom on the other hand (may her soul rest in peace) was maltreating me things I still don’t understand. She never wants me to stay with her for a long time. Most of my life I spent moving from one house to the other.

    Most of my life I spend with my aunt because my mom remarried to another man and she doesn’t want me around. My aunt helped me with my schooling mostly and sometimes my sister. So I spent most of life sifting from one house to another when I should have stayed with my parents in a home. It’s said that boys learn how to become men from there fathers but sadly mine was not around and I still grow to become a young man who is responsible and ready to succeed. In the past I believed that my father was to rise but instead I found that false hope was an unnecessary accessory and now I refused to believe that because I’m fatherless define the limits of great things I can accomplish.

    My ability to be self motivated helps me in so many different ways and I have acquired leadership qualities over the years.

    My father’s name is being meaningless on my birth certificate but still it’s my birth certificate. My origins are not bright but I was given a life and that’s mine to live. I am not going to live forever but if I were leave this world today I would feel contented with person I see in the mirror.

    With this scholarship, I can pursue my dreams of becoming a lawyer or an international journalist and fixed my life which was almost ruin by the very people who supposed to make it and I’ll surely help people with whatever I can help with when I have the power or ability to so.
