In 2013, the girl had to quit her education in school because of the lack of the school fees. She told that this situation put her professional dreams far, but the girl didn’t give up, was positive minded and was sure that one day her dreams would come true. Of course, she understands that the fact that she has ended her secondary education prematurely will make the path to her dreams rather thorny.
To support her family and get out the poverty at the age of 17, Winnie Pasaka has traveled to Mombasa to do household help. The girl has admitted that this job hardly could be called an easy one, but she was not afraid of hard work. Also, Pasaka reviled that this experience was a challenging one not only because of the inhumane conditions but also because some employers used her for their selfish benefits.
Her life changed when in Mombasa she has met a technician who introduced a mechanic job to her and inspired her to change the life. Winnie Pasaka told how it was all going on when she was working in Mombasa. She was finishing her household duties by 9 am and then rushed to the garage where she acquired the mechanic skills. The training at the garage finished early in the morning, and the girl again was rushing to pick up her employer’s children to school and ensure that the kids have returned home safely and in time.
After several months of such rushing and training at the garage, the girl has quit her job and returned to Nairobi, where she was lucky to be hired in one of a motor vehicle garages along Jogoo Road as an auto mechanic.
Now Winnie is enjoying her job and is treated very well. Someone will say that this job involves a lot of dirt and so is not for a girl. But the young lady really loves her job and advises other girls/women not to crave for easy money.
