Two months before December, Christmas celebrations and glorious laughter’s fill the air. After two girls, everyone was looking forward to a boy. Through the second and last cesarean session, my mother delivered another beautiful baby girl. Knowing this was her last baby, she considered me an early gift from Santa for Christmas and named me “GLORIA” meaning “Christmas, prayer, thanksgiving and joy”.
She believed I would be much better than the “Boy” all expected and entrusted the pride of the entire clan on me “ADETI” is my last name meaning “Daughter of the Banyadeti Clan”
I loved and I still love my names to date because they signify happiness, joy and a solid sense of belonging to my roots.
