My name is Kamala and I am a mother of three. I am not the typical superhero that you see in movies. I don’t have a nice costume to wear or a fancy outfit that makes me stand out from the rest. Truth be told I am just an ordinary working-class woman but what makes me special is the superpower I possess. There are many more out there like me but we like to stay lowkey. The power I possess is of motherhood also sometimes known as the power of resilience. I am a single mother to three beautiful young children who I love the most in the world. I sell toys during the day and finally get to spend time with my children at night. With whatever time I am able to spend with them I try to teach them morals and embed values within them. I teach them to be honest, work hard, and most importantly I teach them to be kind to others because you never know what someone is going through. The people in my life haven’t been so kind to me yet you would think people respect superheroes. I work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and get no days off. When I am at work I’m busy selling toys and when I am at home I immersed in serving the needs of my family. The workload is never-ending, there is always something that needs my attention. Whether it be my mischievous 7-year-old who always picks up fights with the neighborhood kids or the leaking roof in my home.
Usually, people like me aren’t heard enough or silenced by society. So, I am truly grateful for this opportunity to be heard and recognized. After all, people like me run the world as Beyonce said. I would like to end by encouraging everyone to be kind to others even if they don’t look like you or talk like you.
