Title: Life Of a 15 Year Old In Nigeria By: Katy Floyd Period:6

Nigeria is an African country on the gulf of Guinea. This country is very small.

Being 15 in Nigeria is difficult but yet full of unknowns, because of the hard lifestyle lived in Nigeria and the surprising events that mysteriously pop up.
Being 15 in Nigeria is difficult because the possibilities are endless

Being a 15 year old student in Nigeria is really tough because they take almost double the courses an average student in the United States would have

Being a 15 year old in Nigeria is hard and very busy because there is a lot on that student’s to do list to do at home on top of doing the chores at home and taking care of the family

CITATION: Lunsford, Andrea A. et al. EasyWriter: a High School Reference. Boston, Bedford/St. Martin's, 2015.

The Research I read states that many students are put under pressure because on top of the twelve courses there is also family to take care of and chores to do at home

Arranged marriages are still common among muslim communities

Muslims believe in strong love therefore to keep the love going they give their children to a husband of the parent's choice.

Having an early marriage makes the possibilities endless because anything can happen with your husband and rape is a huge conflict in these kinds of situations

Being 15 in Nigeria is difficult yet full of unknowns, because of the hard lifestyle lived in Nigeria, Nigerians tend to get used to their culture but it takes a lot of adjusting to get used too.

Challenges might be... having loads of schoolwork to stress over and taking too many classes on top of having to have an arranged marriage, along with worrying about terrorist attacks,

Teenagers, in their free time, might…

Play soccer because soccer is a very popular sport and is loads of fun to play, they might also do some art, but mostly they will probably be helping take care of the family or doing chores that are needed around the house

To Conclude, Life in Nigeria is Not easy but it is doable. Teens who have a hard life and go through a lot still know how to make themselves happy even when it might feel like there is nothing that can be done to make you happy. Teens are put under lots of pressure and still find the happiness inside of them.
