It was 26th of April on Thursday in the afternoon at one of our weekly journalism club meetings. Becky Gitau, our life skills teacher for the day, took charge of our class following a request from our journalism teacher Thomas to take us through a life skills session. We all were eager to all learn something new and after introductions of the new teacher to us by our teacher Thomas, we were all left behind to learn with Aunty Becky.
Upon greeting us once more, Aunty Becky asked us to introduce ourselves so as she could know us better. “Life skills are skills which help us cope with our day to day life,” she told us. All of us sitting attentively on the brown benches gave a listening ear to as she embarked to help impart knowledge on life skills especially to us young people. Her session was very interactive, considering the topic of the day.

Thereafter, we were introduced to a new word, “productivity” which means to be someone in life, and it’s also self awareness. We are able to get a better understanding of the word productivity and moved further on how to make better decisions in life.
These are some of the key points when making decisions in life:
- Take time to think about the problem
- Think of the negative and positive effects of your decision
- And learning how to make your own decision no matter what happens in life.
