I am currently eleventh grader at ASST. My favorite classes are English and chemistry. I participate the community service which I teach the orphanage kids in Gabiley (GOP). I do not face such difficulties as when I was new to the school. Every thing is going smooth and successful. I am currently planning to make running club for the boys. One of the things that i enjoy is doing cross country. Moreover, my favorite food is spaghetti with fish. Finally, I am working hard and looking forward to succeed in the near future.
Dear sponsorships, my name is Bashir Hassan, I am ninth grade student at Abaarso School Science and Technology. My term 2 is just started. The first term was challenging since I became upper school. All the classes were challenging and hard since we started the year. My favorite class so far is science class, because I am really interesting in to learn how do scientist discover new stuff from the past.

We had a short vacation between term 2 and term 1. That vacation were really great. I rested a lot that I got enough sleep, I used to play different kinds of sports at that time, I visit my classmates and my families in different places. I started term 2 with a fresh mind and ready to learn. So far term 2 is going as successfully to me. My goal for the term is to improve my GPA a lot as much as I can, and I hope that will happen. Thank you.
