Thank you very much for publishing my memoir.I am happy to let you that the full novel is ready and any publisher interested in it can reach me. However, i wish to make a correction on page 8, first paragraph on the forth line: The year is 1998 and not 1988. Thank you

A touching story of a real African setting and a must read by the girls, of a focused hard working girl child who defied all odds to get herself to where she wanted to reach! Bravo Rosette Nsonga as I urge the currentAfrican generation to realize that with determination, one can make it in life no matter what.

A powerful story that rewuires telling . So many young people, especially young girls, around the world are confronted with difficult circumstances daily. Your shared experience gives them a blueprint to escaping their situation and and a belief that, with hard work, there can be a better tomorrow !

Woow, the story almost left me crying. A must read for mainly african woman and girl as well as men that perpetuate this impunity in the name of culture, the evil hearted old men, etc. I look forward to a full novel

Hi my namesake Rosette. Thank you so much for your boldness. Thank you so much for breaking the silence of sexual exploitation of young girls in situations like you went through. But more for exposing what widows go through due to the culture of denying them the right to land. The unfairness of our culture when it comes to inheritance.
Rosette for u information I have moved a private members bill to amend our succession act. Will share with you the draft. But need a lot of advocacy to have it passed.

Congratulations! Am so happy for you.
Here I thought I knew your story.
This has silenced me.
Thanks for the Courage, for Perseverence and for that big heart from which you have shared your very self with our society especially the young people who will be guided by its details.
You make me a very proud woman of Nawandhuki.
May all go well with you.

Well done Rosette. Thank you for sharing your story. There are many females who identify with your experience; some like you have over come while others are still on their journey….I hope that indeed some one out there will be inspired by the leap that you made. We all ought to make a leap at one point or another to overcome any adversity.
Go girls go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no stopping us, the sky is the limit.

Thank you so much Ms. Rosette. This is an inspiring true story. What happened to you back in the days, is happening to some girl child somewhere in Uganda or Africa as a whole. I would like to read more about your intriguing and yet true life stories. Bravo.

The story is so beautiful but you need someone to edit and proof read it for you. I have noticed so many minor mistakes which when ignored may cost you many potential buyers

Thank you for sharing your story, many children go through similar challenges, your story should motivate then victims to always confide to the people who care about their wellbeing.

Thank you for sharing this inspiring story Rosette. Surely many youth especially girls can relate to these adverse experiences of abuse,conflict and poverty . Those fortunate enough to read your story will be encouraged and motivated to push through tough times and pursue their goals and dreams in life.

I thank you Rossette for this write up. You are a Lady who have encouraged and inspired many young girls who have a story similar to yours. Your story shows the strength of a woman in you. Am looking forward to work with you on encouraging our girl children who have dropped out of school and are facing psychosocial torture. Be blessed Lady
