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.
