I would like to thank God for the far he has brought me. Lots of thanks to WEMA for the support you have lent me in my education and life.

I am fairing on well in school since all my required needs are met which avails me with a conducive environment to study. The management provides all the resources; books, food and also personal requirements.

I visit the library during my free time; it is bigger now and full of books which help me to complement my studies. I am determined to continue scoring A's in my tests. I love reading and singing.
I would like to become a surgeon in future with my God's grace and your continued support I know this is an achievable target so that I can also give back to my community.

Be blessed.
