I’ll be in matric this year. My parents are very strict and expect me to study hard and go to university.

I’m not fond of studying and am a free spirit who believes people should do what they want to do. My parents think I should study first then I can do what I want but I don’t want to waste years of my life.

I want to tour the world and see new things and learn more about life. My parents have been protective of me because I’m a girl and I’m sick and tired of it.
