I am Florence Juma, a student at Highway Academy High School. I want to thank the Wema fraternity at large for the support during my study time in Highway.

I am currently in form three striving to achieve my success at the end of my form four. I’m a class prefect which is providing me with leadership skill which I do believe will help me achieve my dream of becoming a lawyer.

During my free time, I prefer using the library where I read novels which improves my language skills and my speech. All in all, I thank the school Administration for the continued support they have given me.
Good luck in school this year.
