    I live with my aunt in the Mbeya region with my 3 brothers and 2 sisters. My mother died last year and my father died January this year. When I was in form 1, my aunt couldn't pay my school fees so I could not concentrate on my studies. After I got a TSF scholarship, I could study and my exam results were good. I am proud of my form 4 exam results. My goal is to be a pharmacist. I’ll have to take physics, biology, chemistry. I believe that "only education will help me handle my life". Thus, when I achieve my goal, I will help TSF students and others who have difficulties to get education.

    I live with my parents. My life started to be hard after my father and mother separated. He does not give us support for basic needs, such as clothes and school fees. As a result, my mother must engage in small business such as selling soup and cassava at the market so as to care for our family. She earns very little money. Since we are a family of eight members, it is difficult for my mother to pay my school fees and buy my uniform. I used to get assistance from my uncle, he helped me to buy uniform and a few basic need. But after death of my uncle, there has been no assistance up to the moment. My plan is to finish high school with high marks, then I would like to join the university of my choice and pursue a degree of doctor. Since education has no end, I would like to earn my masters and PhD and be a great professional in Tanzania. Doing this, I can help my family and society at large.

    The dream of my life is to become an engineer. I shall study hard so that I can complete my dream. My challenge at school is that I am not getting breakfast in the morning before going to school. The moments I am proud of myself are when I work hard in my studying and I pass my exam. There are moments when I am not happy because my father doesnt pay school fees on time. That condition makes me be chased from school and not attend classes. Teachers do this because I am at school without paying school fees. I feel bad towards my father when he does not get money on time. Then I have to stay at home and do not have the chance of going to school to study. I will be happy if I am chosen for the School Fund. It will help me so that I can complete my dreams.

    I live with my father, mother and two younger sisters. My mother's name is Amalia and she likes to read the Bible. I want to be a medical doctor because I want to make sure that people are healthy. The most important thing is to reduce the number of people in our country who die. My plan for the future is to pass the Form 4 exams with results in Division 1 or 2 and to go to Form 5 without any problem. With aid from God and TSF's program, I will accomplish what I dream of.
