At admission into Highway Academy early last year; I had not studied under electricity let alone using a Computer or projector.

Further, I had never had access to a well-stocked library. At this point, I am well informed on how to use a computer and how to build a computer, this amazes me.

I would like to express my gratitude to the WEMA Community and the management of Highway Academy for giving me a high school education.

For the year I've been in high school I've not only received an academic uplift but I've also been made a fitter character for the community. We have a bigger library which I visit to read story books and try to improve my writing skills. I love writing and playing netball.

I'm working really hard to achieve my objective of becoming an officer of the law in future.

I wish for God's blessings upon you and pray that you continue supporting me so that I may also support more children in future.
Dear Sheila, I hope you are well and enjoying your studies! I would love to hear about your favorite subjects in school and your hobbies. Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? I have two daughters, and they send their greetings with mine! Take care of yourself, study hard, and have fun!
