My name is Mercy Naliaka I take my studies at highway academy and I am in form four. I work hard in my studies so as to pass my exams. I would like to join Kenyatta University and do mechanical engineering. I would later on like to change the lives of the people and my family.

I like reading storybooks and novels on my free time. This is because it makes me familiarize with English Vocabulary.

I joined Highway Back in 2006, being a child from a poor background, I have come to relish this opportunity to obtain quality education, and I am humbled. The Highway Fraternity and the WEMA Community have raised me well and I promised to be a successful person in future so I build on the work you are already doing.
Hello Mercy,

How are you liking your classes this season?

Warmly,
Jinzhao
