Singer Desire Luzinda is a proud mother of one, but she says her journey to motherhood has not been a bed of roses.
Luzinda says she was impregnated in 2003 while she was in senior six at Makerere College, Kampala.
She was forced to leave school and study from home.
"Most people don't know how to treat a young pregnant girl. I was ridiculed, called names and treated like an outcast due to my growing belly," she explained.
"The teachers were tolerant but the students were not,"she added.
She said all this while launching a new campaign dubbed, Girls and Goals, under which she intends to create awareness about the struggles of the girl child and how they can be overcome.
