Kadiatu Mansaray

My name is Kadiatu Mansaray, born on the 22nd June 1993. I suffered from polio when I was four years old.

I started my primary school at the Freetown Cheshire Home. I sat to the National Primary School Examination (NPSE) in the year 2006 and got a very good grade. I then entered the Bishop Johnson Memorial Secondary School where I sat to the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in 2009 and later sat to the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in 2012.

I hope to proceed my education at Fourah bay College where I intend to read Law. My hope is to become a Lawyer because I love justice and like to see people being treated fairly.

I am very grateful and happy for such an opportunity given to me by DST and the British High Commission which I promise to take very serious.

This training will be very useful to me in the future. I want to be the first female disabled IT specialist in Sierra Leone and beyond and which will also serve as an employment for me and help me to be self reliant.After this training, I will like to support my fellow disable women be self empowered through IT training because ''Disability is not inability but the ability to rehabilitate.''
