I am Wafula Samwel in form four at Highway High School. I am striving to achieve my best at the end of the year. Being a form four,life is smooth but it isn’t that smooth, you have also to go through thick and thin and always try to outsmart the others. The experience is nice for the tougher ones.

Being successful makes you happier, but also owes you sleepless nights and skipping games time to achieve it. The teachers are good but sometimes rough according to students code of behavior. While in a mistake, some may understand you and others only misunderstand you. But being morally upright and ever punctual, you find life being so smooth in this institution.

To achieve the best in my exams, I have decided on making some decisions, though some may be strenuous but for me to come out a successful student with a direct entry into University. I should abide by them.

Life at Highway is awesome; school fees had been a big barrier to my education and am forever grateful to WEMA for taking up this load.

Thank you.
Good luck in school Samuel!

    I am the second child of a single mother who works as a casual worker, mostly doing household laundry in the neighborhood. She also does other small trades and through this, she can only pay for my older brother's fee. I love playing volleyball and my dream is to represent kenya at an international level. I also dream of being an engineer and try establish a foundation to help needy children in my community.

    I was raised by father after the death of my mother in 2009. She was the family' breadwinner and this proved very difficult for us. In primary school, I was supported by well-wishers and they were not able to extend the help beyong that level. I dream of being a doctor and help people in my community and Kenya at large. Hopefully, my influence will be some dsy felt across the globe.
