Hi Millicent--sending you best wishes in your studies from the other side of the world!
I am seventeen years old. I study at Highway Academy’s high school. The school is situated at Bukembe in Bungoma County. At this school everyone is friendly: teachers, pupils and the subordinate staff. The manager and the manageress are friendly too. At school I study mathematics, physics, history, c.r.e., geography, Kiswahili, English, computer, business, agriculture, biology and chemistry. I like reading storybooks and novels. I like playing football too. Reading storybooks and novels improves my level of creativity while playing keeps my body fit. I would like to be a doctor. It is so because many people are dying in hospitals because of insufficient treatment. Doctors in our country are few. There are only five specialized doctors. This gives me the desire to become a doctor. Thanks to all those who have offered me support to proceed with my studies.
