“Lady Jane the world’s greatest female political leader” a supporter shouts.
The rest of the crowd standing below the balcony calls out,
“Lady Jane yeah!”
For the Prime Minister herself it was the greatest day in her life so far.
As she stands before the mirror in the hotel room with tears in her eyes, she recalls everything that happened in her life starting in high school.
At the first moment she looked through the window, she almost fainted because of the students. It was an international school so as you may imagine each student came from a different country.
‘I may as well throw up’ she thought.
Her teacher welcomed her into the room. She quietly took a seat at the back of the class. No friends, no home by the sea….
‘Get a grip!’ she ordered.
You’ll make it through right?
She couldn’t answer that question.
Around eleven twenty the school bell rang for lunch. Everyone left the room including Jane. She explored her new surroundings. She noticed a few things that were different from her old school. The students here were friendly and outgoing and the school facilities here were good. What she liked most was the school library. Her old school did not have such things.
“ Day one is almost over.” She says to herself.
As the time went by she got used to the school, criticisms and insults that other girls throw at her because she often talked to herself. One common name given was ‘weirdo’.
Some good years passed and Jane went to university. She studied history and did extra reading on politics and the media. After four years she graduated and took a job as a newspaper columnist. People often showed little respect towards her because she was the youngest in the department. Once she went to a meeting and she met a guy who said, “ Hey miss, I bet you wish you were the boss like me”
“Not if it meant being stupid and corrupt like you, ” she replied sharply.
That shut him up.
But determination made her become the head of the company. Two years later she got involved in the politics and became the opposition leader. This was very challenging because she was the only female leader in the parliament, and being a woman aroused doubts in the country.
However she held her head high and ignored all the negative reactions towards her. Eventually she became the Prime Minister and governed her country well. She did many great things and became one of the greatest leaders in politics.
“ What a journey my life has been.” She says.
