Hi,

Greetings from me and my family. I am very grateful we are coming to the end of this very challenging year. The year that had started with a lot of hope took a turn for the worse when the first case of coronavirus was reported in the country. All the hope that I had turned into worry and we had to really struggle at home. We received some food from Wema and it helped us. I am eagerly waiting to be back learning again.

Sheilla
My name is Sheila Wamalwa. I joined Highway Academy High School this year. I graduated from Highway Academy Primary School last year after passing my Kenya Certificate of Primary Education Examination.

When I joined Highway, my life got so interesting compared to how it was in other schools. Students here are disciplined; furthermore, the teachers are enough to serve the needs of all of us, they teach us well and my results reflect their effort. My favorite subjects are Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

In future I would like to be a Doctor. I thank WEMA for granting me the chance to pursue my dream; I will prove myself worthy of your sacrifice. May the Almighty God bless The Wema Community.
