Journalism my passion – Fridah

AT 13 YEARS, Fridah Bwali dreams of becoming a journalist when she completes her secondary school education.
Inspired by Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) journalists Jacqueline Tembo and Fridah Mukuka, Fridah hopes one day she will be able to read the news on the national broadcaster.
“I admire the way Jacqueline reads the news, she has a good accent and I always listen to mama Mukuka on radio one, her programmes are so informative,” she said.
Fridah said together with her best friend, Deborah Nguni, they are working hard to have the dreams fulfilled despite being in Grade Eight.
She said her favourite subjects are English, history, geography and science.
Fridah is also hoping that one day when she grows up she will be able to bless humanity like the First Lady Esther Lungu.
“I love watching television and every time I see a picture of the First Lady she is ever helping people. I like madam Lungu’s works,”.
She said she is happy that she is at a school where teachers encourage them to study hard to succeed in life.
Fridah said the teachers at Kawama Secondary School ensure that they live up to the school motto– ‘success through hard work, striving to provide quality education for future leaders’.
She said the teachers have also taught them that education is the only tool that pupils can use to acquire knowledge.
Fridah, however, complained of lack of security at the school.
“A wall fence should be built around the school, we have people from the compound walking around the school unnecessarily.
She also appealed to the school to construct sports facilities at the school such as basketball and netball courts.
Fridah’s hobbies are reading, swimming, singing and dancing. She is also a devoted youth at a Catholic Church.
