13-year-old girl

My mom and dad decided that I should get engaged to a relative without asking me if I wanted this. I was very sad but I couldn’t say no. The psychologists at the SB center helped me to improve my self-confidence, they encouraged me to talk with my parents and explain that I did not want to get married at such young age. It worked, now I am in school, continuing my academic career.

Fille de 15 ans

Ma mère et mon père ont décidé que je devrais me fiancer avec un membre de ma famille sans me demander si je le voulais. J’étais très triste mais je ne pouvais pas dire non. Les psychologues du centre SB m’ont aidé à améliorer ma confiance en moi, ils m’ont encouragée à parler avec mes parents et à expliquer que je ne voulais pas me marier à un âge aussi jeune. Cela a fonctionné, maintenant je suis à l’école, poursuivant ma carrière universitaire.
