Waking up not knowing how the day will end is a mystery that no one can de-mystify: Learning to Embrace Change of life at an early Age by accepting a loss

My name is Jackline Cheche, I am an eight born in a family of nine, I got an accident at a tender age of five. I was just lucky to be alive after l was involve in the road accident, since then my life has really changed.With my prosthetic leg, no one can tell which one of my legs was amputated. I have learnt to embrace it as part of my body and in deed it is part of me.

After the accident l was amputated because that was the only option left for me to be alive. Life as amputee has not been easy for me. Having been raised by a single mum meant a lot to me, she was the only person me and my siblings looked up to for all our needs. And now that I had gotten a disability, that meant an added expense to her budget.

l thank my mother that she has always supported me despite the struggles and hardships. l remember one time after the accident, l tried to move out of my seat and l really fell, I had not adjusted to my new life so l thought l still had my leg. It hit me later that I am an amputee.

I joined Sengani girls’ secondary school after my primary school then later moved to Joytown Secondary school for the physically challenged. I later joined modelling career which was not paying so l decided to venture in teaching where I joined Kenya Institute of Special Education (KISE).

I have, with time, learnt to accept my disability that am amputee, l don’t regret being one despite the challenges that come with it. Every day to me is a moment of learning new skills to live happily and I take pleasure in sharing my knowledge and experience with people around me I wish to encourage people with disabilities to find happiness in the little things they are able to do and achieve in life. What others can do, l also can do and probably even better.
