Funnily enough, Proscovia is so young, she hasn't even voted yet. Though naysayers scoff at the idea of a 19-year-old representing
such a troubled region, she remains confident in her abilities to champion the
interests of those who voted for her. “It’s not about the age," she says. “It’s
about the brain.”
Like her father before her, Proscovia
seeks to dedicate herself to issues that will improve her locale, like building
roads, fighting cattle rustling and improving education. She is the youngest
member of an African parliament, and many hope she will inspire youth
everywhere to raise their voices and make a difference.

Good for her! Africa is in desperate need of gender equality and this is exactly what needs to happen for that to be obtained! Yay for Girls!

I think that as long as she is up for the challenge and is smart about her decisions she should be fine. She will need to be mature but having a younger member of Parliament could bring in new ideas. Congrats!!! I hope you do great Proscovia!!!

Not that I'm not all for teens making a difference and all, but a teen in parliament? And representing a struggling area? It just seems like a teen, no matter how smart she is, would be ready to make that kind of big decisions, mentally or emotionally. I know that all the teens I know aren't.
