Journal

I study Biology, History, Chemistry, Mathematics, Agriculture, Kiswahili and English and Christian religious education. I like reading novels especially those that encourage me to move on with life and to accept other people in the society. I also like playing netball and hockey and sometimes I spend my free time listening to music. In the future I would like to be an airhostess. The reason that drives me to this job is that I have a lot of passion for traveling around the world. I want to travel worldwide and to meet different people of different types and also to get money to help my society.
