Stories like this go a long way to inspire those who think all is lost when they come into this world with no silver spoon stuck in their mouths. Here’s Sharon Mbabazi, the journalism student who struggles by working as a brick layer before paying her school fees.
Sharon lost her mum at the tender age of five and from then on, she has learnt to grow a thick skin, fend for herself and pursue her dream. Determined to remain in school, Sharon works as a construction worker and started laying bricks for a living.
According to NBS Television, the young visionary, together with her siblings, started laying bricks when she was just six years old.
“I lost my mum when I was five-years old. I grew up with my dad and four siblings,” she said.
As if that is not enough, Sharon who is the third born child had to become the breadwinner after her dad suffered an injury. Before settling on the business, she tried to think of any other ventures that could bring in income but none satisfied her.
“As he was working in the mine, a brick hit him and cracked one of his ribs,” she added.
