Desire Luzinda has revealed her pride for having endured the hardships she faced during teenage pregnancy.
Desire unleashed this in a post on her facebook wall as she defended her forever proclaimed 25 years of age on her birthday.
She alleged that her claim of always making the same one year after the other was to her a sign that signified her strong spirit.
“While some of you insult me,get offended and take it so personally at the mention of my ‘forever 25yrs’,to me it means that proud teenage mother who gave birth at 19(not that am proud of early pregnancy ),but I chose motherhood over abortion!” wrote Desire.
She further narrated her experience on how she had to continue pursuing her studies as a S.6 candidate despite the immense pressure from her peers who actually never accepted her in her condition.
She proudly pointed out that she was not only able to do her UACE but she passed and delivered her daughter two weeks after her exams.
“I have lived with my daughter from the time she was born to date. She is my daughter, my best friend and I chose a mother-daughter friendship over anything else,” added Desire.
“This is to encourage all young mothers out there, a mistake once made cannot be reversed but you can turn it into the best decision of your life. It doesn’t matter how you toil, what matters is how you have raised your child and strive to give him/her a better brighter future than yours,” advised Desire in her post on Facebook.
The ‘Kitone’ artiste also thanked all those that had come through to wish her a happy birthday.
