Hello Bushra,
My name is Virginia am Kenya girl am working smart to success. Am sending best wishes for your studies.


YOUR FRIEND VIRGINIA
Hello there!
The first term of this year went very good and i'm proud to say that it was a productive one. The second term is going really great with the help of my teachers who are dedicated to teach and guide us to the best of their ability. One of the classes that i am enjoying so far this year is Psychology. It really fascinates me. I am interested in how human brain works, what affects our decision making process and what determines one's behavior. Attending this class has enabled me find answers to some of my questions and also arouse more questions in my mind which i find absolutely thrilling!
I also enjoy my English class a lot. My goal is to read as many books as i can this year. I am looking forward to what this year has yet to bring.
Thank you for reading.
