About

Virginia is the first-born child in a family of four. Her father is a casual laborer while her mother is a housewife. After doing her final exam in 2015 and scoring well, Virginia could not join secondary school since her parents could not afford the fees. Her parents wanted her to get employed as house help. Her hopes of becoming a doctor and help people in need was diminishing. She decided to repeat grade eight and she emerged the best in her school. Her success was not without challenges. She lacked kerosene to study at night and could only use her daytime to study. Most of the time she was sent home due to lack of payment for school levies. Virginia is outgoing and determined to go against all odds to achieve her dreams.

    Class rank: 3/45 I was born in 1998 at Mount Merry Hospital. The most difficult experience I had early in life is the death of my father. This made our family to be in a bad condition. Due to the fact that my mother has low income, which could not provide the family with basic needs like food, education, clothes and others, life become miserable. I thank God that He has provided me a chance in The School Fund and I promise to use the opportunity well by studying hard and being a good student. The happiest moment in my life will be when I fulfill my dream of becoming a medical doctor and helping my country, society, and family, as well as The School Fund which has supported me to fulfill my dream.

    I plan to grow up to be a Doctor, because I have seen many people have health problem. My happiest moment is when I was chosen to enter Form-1 after I completed primary level school. Not every child can enter Form-1, it is a privilege. I am so proud of myself. After I fulfill my Doctor dream, I will build a lot of hospitals. People can get medical services when they are sick. I plan to give back to the School Fund portion of my salary. Also I would like to join this organization to help other children to go to school and get educated.
