My name is Brenda 25, studying tourism at the university. I am from Mbarara but my father is from Rwanda and my mother from Buganda. My father’s relatives segregate against me because I don’t look like them [ I have my mother’s dark complexion and body build.]

When i visit my grand mother, my relatives call me bad luck, they don’t even want to look at me. They all hate me [aunties and uncles and even my grandmother] The last time I was there, I cried all night but my father told me not to worry because I am his princess.

I am happy that my father, mother and her relatives love me so much but i want to be loved by dad’s relatives as well or at least not to be segregated against like I am from another planet.
