    Class rank: 4/139 I live with my mother and my brother who also is studying. My dream is to be a nurse, so I will be able to help people who are sick. Studying hard will help me reach my goal. The most difficult experience I had in my life was the loss of my father. He was my role model. He guided, advised, and cared for me so much. His death was painful to me because I lost someone very important. What hurts the most is that he wasn't able to see my Form 4 exams results, because he struggled so hard for me to get an education. But it's all God plan. We can't undo what has been done. The happiest day for me and my mother was when we saw my National exam results. I made it into Division II. I feel proud when I do things that people say I can't do, and then I know I am strong and can overcome obstacles. I plan to finish my Advanced level education and score the highest mark, so I can go to university. When my dream comes true, I shall give back to the community and The School Fund by supporting the other students in need, so they too can reach their goals.

    I live with both mother and father. My father has no job and my mother sells local vegetables but it is not enough to satisfy our family's basic needs. My father is not concerned with our needs. The situation is affecting my education and our family life. I have poor uniforms, lack books, and so on. If I can pay for the school requirements, I am sure I will reach my goal of being a teacher. The happiest moment in my life was when I was selected for O-level.

    Class Rank: 6/88 I felt proud when I passed my National Exam, also when I helped my friend to learn who to read and write. My happiest time is when I performed well in the class and got the top grade. My most difficult experience is when my father told us that we are not his children, I don't even know who is my real father. I felt sad but I determined to live a better life in the future. I learned that in order to live in good environment I need to study hard and work hard. My dream job is to become accountant, it is a well paid job. I will then have money to help community orphans. After that I shall build a school to help people who have no money for their children's education. I shall also help the School Fund to pay school fees for students who are selected.

    I wish to become a doctor. I have to study hard because I want to be helpful to my parents and my relatives. The subjects which I like the most are biology, chemistry and English I would be proud to do a doctor's work, especially counseling people with different problems. A doctor is very important in society when someone gets into an accident. I want to be able to provide first aid. I want to reduce the number of people who die from accidents and from diseases like HIV/AIDS. Also this job will help me earn an income that will provide basic needs for my children and family. I wish for a blessing to achieve my dream.

    Class Rank: 2/301 My dream is to be an engineer someday because my uncle is an engineer , I admire him! I will study extra hard in three subjects: Physics, Math and Chemistry. My moment I felt especially proud is when I scored the 2nd best out of three hundred and one students in my terminal exam. My happiest moment in my life is when I get to live with my uncle and aunt after my parents died. I did not have to live in an orphanage. My most difficult experience is when I failed in my standard seven mock exams. Thanks God it was only a mock test! I learnt to always study and I thank God because now I am the 2nd best student. After my dream come true I plan to give back to the School Fund by helping other students who live a hard life. I will also take part in social activities to help those poor children in my community.
