About

Class rank: 40/162 I live with my parents, but our life is difficult because we are very poor. My parents failed to pay school fee and to give us basic needs of food, clothes and education. My father is a farmer who grows tomatoes, maize, and vegetables. My mother sells tea to help the family. I want to study hard to change the life of my family and to make my life better and to help other people who have difficult lives like my parents. I pay God to help me. I thank The School Fund for supporting me and helping me to fulfill my dream to become a teacher.

    I am the second born of five children. We live with our parents, my father and mother. It is a happy family and our parents do everything they can to keep us going. We all depend on my father's meager income and sometimes it becomes difficult to support my older sister in school. I have great ambitions of making it in life and I believe I can achieve my greatest goals with a good education. I have always committed to see this pass and the TSF support is the right platform for me and am grateful.
