About

Vincent is a disciplined and intelligent boy. His dream to become an electrical engineer started early in life when he learnt the skills of radio repair from a neighbor. He developed great interest in repairing radios that had been thrown away. Out of his curiosity, he repaired his first broken radio for his uncle and it worked! Later he repaired yet another broken radio for his grandfather and it worked too! Vincent's good performance in school did not come on a silver platter. He was able to sacrifice his sleep by sleeping late and waking up very early to study. He also consulted his teachers much on subjects he felt he needed help. He believes that hard work pays. Vincent is the only son to his single mother. He currently lives with his grandparents. His grandfather has suffered stroke and has not been able to help provide for Vincent.

    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.
