About

Edna is second born child in a family of three. She stays with her grandmother who has taken up the responsibility of caring for her. Her mother is single and jobless. Edna’s elder sister dropped out of school in form two due to lack of school fees. Edna’s journey to success in primary school was not without challenges. She woke up at the crack of dawn each morning and walked about 2 kilometers to school. Sometimes she went to school without any breakfast. Other times she arrived to school late and had to take a punishment but that did not make her to give up. She remained determined and worked hard to attain good grades. Edna emerged the best student by scoring 396 marks out of 500 at her school. She believes that determination knows no barrier.

hi
I am happy that we are going back to school and continue with learning. I am hoping to achieve my goal as I complete my four year course. I would like to thank you all for your support. Bye for now
Greetings everyone,
I am fine and hope you are all fine. The corona holiday has been very long but I am still working hard to achieve my goal for I know that an investment in education pays the best interest. When I feel like quitting a quote always keeps me going-WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE QUITTING THINK ABOUT WHY YOU STARTED. I am hoping that things will be back to normal and we will report back to school and continue with our studies.The holiday has been of benefit to me because I have been able to tackle some areas I had challenges in my studies while at school.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR MOTIVATION AND GOD BLESS YOU.
Regards.
EDNA.
