About

Rachael's father is poor and their livelihood is derived from a small farm. She has one brother, and three sisters. The elder sister is in Form three studying through a bursary and the rest of her siblings are all in primary school where they are catered for by her parents. In primary school, Rachael was often out of school because her family was often unable to riase money for her school fees. Her life has changed from a life filled with uncertainties about the future to one brimming with hope for a good future for her and her family. She intends to study as hard that as she can so that one day help a student as needy as she is to realize their dream. "I thank Wema very much for giving me the chance to join this school and I will work very hard to achieve my dreams" -Rachel.

I thank everyone who has supported my education. This virus has greatly affected my academics. Before we went home I was good academically because I used to visit the school library every free time that I had. At home I really had a hard time because I did not have a conducive environment. I was affected with noise and we had disputes among family members and I was psychologically tortured. I prayed so much and I thank God because we are back in school. We are observing most of the measures that were outlined by the government to ensure our safety in school. I promise to work hard and attain a good grade to enable me to join a great university of my dream.
Thanks to the almighty God, the Wema Community and the Highway Academy fraternity for guaranteeing my future by providing me with an education. I have pursued my education here and I have seen that I have a bright future.

I would like to be an architect in future coz I am good in math and designing things and I have already designed my dream house. I learnt how to draw and design things at school. I can now design a basic housing structure in our School Technology and engineering club.

After completing my High School education, I would like to move on to University to realize my dream of being an architect and eventually coming back to Highway to build a Hall that the school needs. I hope to be of great impact to children like me in future, as you have been to me.

Thank You.
