I struggled to learn to read and write in primary school. Because I was so bad at writing and reading, school went poorly, my whole life was in danger. After a long struggle, I finally learned and now I have a successful career. I have a job as a supermarket clerk and I can provide for my family. Most of my early life felt like a struggle. My home situation was very unstable due to a family breakdown and arguments at times. While the other kids were learning to read and write, I skipped school for many years.
It was only in the beginning that I had some difficulties with the pronunciation of some tricky words and letters. I found myself with a clever teacher and all my problems were solved. I joined a class with about 20 other adults. My literacy problems stole my hopes and dreams of success in life. The turning-point came when my teacher encouraged me to take part in the class.
Knowing he believed in me made such a difference. I took part in the class very actively for 9 months. Then I even took part in other classes as an assistant. Despite all my difficulties, I discovered that I was intelligent. When I left the literacy centre, I decided to take action and I studied hard to improve my reading and writing.
I challenged myself in many ways: I knew nothing about learning new skills and seeing a positive outcome in all circumstances. I became a person who was never afraid to try something new. I now work as a store clerk in a big supermarket and now I can write notices, the list of shop materials, prices. I get a good pay, I can support my family and persuade others to learn and change their lives.
What would you like to say to other adults who cannot read and write? My years of struggle taught me how hard life is. By overcoming my difficulties and being patient and persistent, I have achieved things. If you try hard to read and write, it will not take forever.
