    My most difficult experience was happened when my father had an accident at Yuole. It was 12:00pm when he was coming home. It was not his fault only a bad luck that he broke his legs and hand. Thanks to God, he is all well now. This experience taught me to be extra careful when I am on the street. Someday I want to become an engineer. There are many orphans, street children and disabled people in Tanzania. When my dreams come true, I will ask all my dear friends join me help those poor people by starting an organization.

    Class Rank: 2/57 During a bad moment, I decided to always study hard so I can reach my goal becoming an accountant. What I learned from that hard moment was that I have to pay respects to my parent, because no matter what hardship she experiences herself, she makes sure I get good education so I can have a better and easier life. When my parents separated and my Father left because of a family misunderstanding, I lived with my mother. During that time my mother had no job but even though she struggled, she still made sure that I went to school and got good education.

    In 2012 I did the national examination for two days. In the results, I got a 192 marks, equal to grade B, and I could join standard 5. When I was in class 5, my mother passed away. It was difficult for me. She paid my school fees. Another person paid my fees in class 6. My examination results were good and I passed to join standard 7. In standard 7, we did the mock examination for our zone and I got a good result, grade A. Then I did the national examination and I got 217 out of 250 marks, equal to a grade A. Now that I have financial support from The School Fund, I want to pass all the national examinations and become a doctor.
