Hello Ahmad!
How are u
In the school we are in the first two weeks of term two. And actually term one had been very excited and fun term. There were a lot of work I have done on term one. As you know that when you are student you spent most of your time for studying because what usually challenge us as teenage or as students is education.vSome of the greatest things that I have done on term two was that I use to tutor and help some kids who came in the school every day for learning and I was very glad to help that kids.

There is a reason that I am learning and studying. I want to achieve and accomplish my goals and I have good expectation on my future. In the future I want to be engineer because after I have notice that the most issues that my country struggling with such as rough and poor roads cause by accidents every day. Besides, I don’t only want to be engineer but also I want to study economy and business because it’s something that I am personally interesting. I know there will be a lot of thing to do to achieve this goals but I will stay optimistic and energetic. Overall, thank you for everything, I hope you will find this letter.
