I am proud to be going to Abaarso School and received high quality education which is more than what I had dreamed of. I am thankful for your support in the past two years were very successful years. I am right now in my first year of upper school with the hope of being a leader to my country and health support of my country and the world. I really enjoy going to the orphanage center in my afternoons for my extra curicular as a tutor and teach young male kids who are willing and needed of getting the education.
