My name is Kasonde Bowa. I live in Ndola , Zambia in Central Africa. I grew up in the semi rural town of Mwense in Luapula province in the north, one of the poorest parts of Zambia.

Most people from Luapula are short because of poor food yields, and the province is reputed to have the largest number of stunted children in the country. I am fortunate in this sense in that I am 1.78 meters tall.
