Good luck in school Samuel!
I am 16 years old and am in Form One. I study at Highway Academy located in Bukembe. My favorite subjects are English, biology, physics and chemistry. I like playing football and reading novels. I also like collecting news in my free time. In the future, I would like to be a surgeon and I work hard to achieve this dream. I make sure that I study hard not to fail in any subject. During my leisure time, I play football, read novels or collect information concerning a certain or given quotation. I love my school because it has done a lot for me and its environment is conducive.
Good luck in school this year.

    I come from a family of four, my two siblings, my mother and I. My father left for the countryside after he separated from my mother. This separation left us under the care of my mother. My mother is a hardworking woman and she has inspired me a lot. I owe everything I have achieved in this young life to her. She is my biggest source of hope. I joined the football team in school and I hope to help my school achieve its highest feat. I work hard in everything I do and I go for the most challenging of experiences to gain more exposure. My philosophy in life is to always strive for the highest attainable glory.

    I come from a big family. I have nine other siblings. We are all taken care of by my father who at this point is not working/unemployed. My older siblings have attended/still attend not-very-good schools. I was to follow suit until The School Fund came to my rescue. This is a "first" in my family. This is a common situation in Kibera. I am among the lucky few from financially disadvantaged families to get support from well-wishers.
