"My name is Hiwot Tadesse Abraham. I am 17. This is my first pregnancy and I am very excited - maybe a bit worried at the same time because I don't know what to expect."

"I live in Debre Zeit, Addis Ababa, with my mother and sister, Meaza Tadesse, who is 12. My boyfriend, Asmelash, is 19 years old and lives with his family, also in Debre Zeit. We didn't use contraception. When I became pregnant I decided to keep the baby. I also decided to leave school."
