About

He was able to overcome and emerge the best in the class. Daniel believes that education is the only key to his success. He is the first-born child in a family of three. His father is a wood carver whose small earnings have been depleted by hospital bills of ailing members of his extended family.

Hello Daniel!

I am very happy that you are able to go back to school! I am sure you are happy to see your friends and teachers. I understand Form 4 is a big year! I hope the revision at the Kenya Connect LRC was helpful for you. Did you know that students who read for fun tend to score higher on exams than students who don't read? Keep borrowing books from the KC LRC to help with all your schooling.

I live in Maryland. Currently we are in the season of autumn. The leaves are starting to change colors and soon it will become cold. Our vegetable gardens have all been picked and will rest over the winter.

Work hard and keep reading. Take care!

Sharon
