Her Story - About Mauritia Patcha
Her name is Mauritia Patcha. She is a survivor.
Her father died young and being the first of 7 children, she felt it her duty to help raise and educate her siblings. She was twenty when she married my father and by her 25th birthday she was a widow. In those 5 years she experienced the death of her first born, gave birth to 2 girls and was pregnant with her third. She moved back into her mother’s home and went back to the business of surviving for herself, her siblings, and her children.
She resumed the teaching job she had given up when she started a family. With social services being her first love in career choices, she studied hard, earned the qualifications and rose to rank of Divisional Officer for Social Affairs for Meme and Ndian divisions in Cameroon, West Africa. She realized early on that in order to reach her full potential she needed a college degree.
She had gone to Teachers Training College straight from primary school, without her GCE O’ Levels certificate. So, she studied at home, wrote the General Certificate of Education Ordinary (GCE O’) Levels and passed.
