Hellen Wangeci

I am sixteen years old and a Kikuyu by tribe. I don’t know the meaning of my name but I believe it has one, and it must be a good meaning because ‘Wangeci’ has a good ring to it. I started playing football as a hobby at the KCC ground. Later my team and I started participating in the MYSA leagues and that is how I ended up playing in MYSA. I was selected to go to an AIDS awareness workshop and that is where I handed in my application form for Shootback and later I was selected. I have really learned a lot from Shootback. For example, I know how to take pictures using different types of cameras, which I knew nothing about before, and I have become more assertive and confident. I want to study journalism as a profession. My hobbies are playing football, taking pictures and traveling.
