I am called Jacob and take my studies in Highway Academy High School. I started learning from this school since I was a kid in baby class. I am proud of learning in Highway, till now I am in form four having aged 18 years. This is the year that will determine my life so I put in more efforts in my studies. I would like to join Kenyatta University after form four and take mechanical engineering as my coarse of choice. I will therefore like to be an engineer.

I like reading novels and storybooks during my free time. What I hate most is being frustrated with my friends but forgive each other and life goes one. The most frustration I get is when I fail my examination. But this only reminds me that I have to work harder.

I have most friends in school and others are my village friends. We spend our time in discussion groups about our studies. I love them all for they keep me happy all day. Some people that I am always close to them are my teachers. They help me so much in my studies. I am proud of them for every process in school. Above all, I thank the wema the wema community for stepping in to support our studies. We get much experience from the computer and projectors. The balls we use them in the field for playing. The books in the library have also helped us a lot.
This is my last year course in high school .I am very happy and thanking to Wema Community for having supported my education since form one.

My future was almost diminishing but the Wema project t has shade light on it. Through the efforts of Wema Community, I have a lot of experience in my academics. It has helped me to interact well with people around and at large.

The effect of Wema has helped me to secure my dream of furthering my education after high school .It has encouraged me to have hope and dream of becoming a financial leader who will one day push for the interests of poor members in the society.
I’m very proud of Wema Community and thank it so much for its great educative programs. Thanks to Wema.
