About

Leah is a total orphan who comes from the northern part of Kenya. She began studying at Highway Academy after she was found living with a distant relative in the nearby Bukembe Market. Though a few years behind in school, Leah has worked incredibly hard to make up for the time she lost. She particularly enjoys studying science and Kiswahili and dreams of becoming a lawyer.

I take eight subjects: English, mathematics, biology, chemistry, Kiswahili, history, CRE, and agriculture. Among those subjects, I like history, English, Kiswahili, and CRE. I want to be a lawyer. I also like reading novels and playing volleyball. I am doing well at school. Thank you for your support towards my studies.
Dear Leah, We hope that school is going well and that you are working hard and having fun! We think about you all the time and wish you all the best. We wish you a very happy New Year and hope that you enjoy the rest of the school year! The Patons
