Class Rank: 2/29 My happiest moment in life is when I scored the highest grade A in the class seven exams. My dream in life is to become a surgeon. I am going to get there by studying hard and read a lot of books. The most difficult experience in my life was when my father was seriously sick and finally died on a Sunday morning at 8:00AM. I learned no one is immortal, everybody can die unexpectedly. The moment which I felt proud of myself is when we build a new house. I plan to give back to the community, after I become a surgical Doctor. I will build a surgery hospital and treat those who can't afford the surgery. I plan to give back to the School Fund by contributing 10% of my salary and to work together with this organization.

Dear Students,

Last Sunday was the last day of my 2017 school year at my university. My sister graduated after four years with the same university. My family and I attended her graduation. There were several speeches presented by different speakers to the graduating students. I was moved by one in particular so I’d to share with you one of the key points of this speech: the importance of giving back.

“Giving back is where you give, and then nothing happens. No benefits for you, no recognition, nothing tangible gets sent your way. Your biggest and sole reward is the realization that you’ve made a significant change in someone’s life. And if not “significant” then a positive change nevertheless.”

So students, regardless if you will be graduating or continuing on with the same school, let us give back to our community whatever and whenever we can. If you have specific talents, teach others what you know, help out others whenever you are able. As the speaker said, privilege comes with responsibility. We all have the privileges of getting an education; therefore, we all have the responsibility to help others who are less fortunate.
Have a wonderful summer!

    I am the third child in my family. My father is a driver and my mother is a cook. The problem that faces me at school is that I have been chased away because I did not pay my school fees. I really feel very sad when I am sent home from school and leave others in class studying. I want to study hard and help my family. I also want to help other people who can't get their basic needs, for example, food. After four years, what I want is to get Division 2 in my national exams. The thing I want to accomplish is to give hope to students like me so they don't give up in life.

    Class Rank: 1/50 My dream is to become an engineer when I grow up. I know that I have to do good in subjects like Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. In my life time I learned that difficult subjects were more rewarding when I did not give up. I learned about difficult experiences when I lost my youngest sister. It was so painful to face death when I was still a kid. I feel proud when I succeed when it is difficult now, and even more proud of myself when I received my score as the 3rd in the whole district. After these four years I want to become an engineer, to help the society in different ways and also help my fellow citizens. I also want to become a good citizen of my country.
