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 am the third child in my family. My father is a driver and my mother is a cook. The problem that faces me at school is that I have been chased away because I did not pay my school fees. I really feel very sad when I am sent home from school and leave others in class studying. I want to study hard and help my family. I also want to help other people who can't get their basic needs, for example, food. After four years, what I want is to get Division 2 in my national exams. The thing I want to accomplish is to give hope to students like me so they don't give up in life.

    Class Rank: 1/50 My dream is to become an engineer when I grow up. I know that I have to do good in subjects like Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. In my life time I learned that difficult subjects were more rewarding when I did not give up. I learned about difficult experiences when I lost my youngest sister. It was so painful to face death when I was still a kid. I feel proud when I succeed when it is difficult now, and even more proud of myself when I received my score as the 3rd in the whole district. After these four years I want to become an engineer, to help the society in different ways and also help my fellow citizens. I also want to become a good citizen of my country.
