Our lives’ norms have slightly changed over the past five and a half months, well, approximately. No nation in the world has not been struck by the pandemic that is rapidly robbing people of their health, and, sorry to say, loved ones. Schools have been shut down, with no assured date of reopening. Face masks, social distancing, curfews, and lockdowns have been implemented with no doubt, apart from a negligible number of outlaws, the rules have been followed to the letter.
One question though, how are people around the world coping? With their jobs closed down, it’s a bit difficult for parents to handle their kids, keeping in mind that schools are more of daycares even for teenagers, and parents do not need to keep a hawk-eye on their children.
Here’s how we, are dealing under the negative circumstance.
My name is Eddie. Well, basically that’s my nickname. I’m Edwin Ng’ang’a, I’m seventeen years old and basically based in Kenya all my life. I am in my third year of high school. Sad truth, I’ll have to repeat, after our Cabinet Secretary for education said so. We have been home here in Kenya since March eighteenth.
Being home means teenagers are being exposed to a lot of vices in the country. That is why I came up with a way to keep my friends and I busy in order to avoid succumbing to the negativity in life.
I have been on YouTube frequently, so this idea struck my best friend and I. How about we come up with our own YouTube channels! Believe me, it was a good idea. So, we created the channels, and now we are all hooked to creating Sci-Fi videos.
I am certain that our work will bear fruit, and we’d like to be in a position to grow and educate others. We hope we’ll have helped several kids around the globe, saved them from drugs, addictions, and early teenage pregnancies, such as those in our country. It’s sad when age mates watch their fellow age mates’ downfall. We might not be strong enough for the world, but at least our aims are.
We surely hope that students who read this article will follow our tracks. The road might be winding over and over again, but hey! Our legacies are in our sights! So, let’s keep up the pace!
Anyone wishing to know how we edit, we are soon releasing tutorials, on our YouTube channels.
