Hello TSF sponsors!

This is Lisa Heinert, Director of Scholarships at Melubo's school. I am writing on Melubo's behalf because our internet has been very limited at school, making it difficult for Melubo to post to his journal.

Melubo is doing really well, and is excited about starting his final year of secondary school in July. Melubo has been serving as a leader and mentor on campus during his 11th grade year, and was elected as student body vice president for this school year. He continues to grow as a leader and his impact on other students is positive and inspiring. In his election speech, Melubo said:

"You are all leaders, no matter what grade you are in. And me, I want to be a leader of leaders. We will work together in order to lead this school and overcome any challenges that we may face."

I have also included a photo of Melubo during student elections. Thank you for your support of Melubo's education!
