I am into my second year of high school and I would like to thank the Wema community for giving me an opportunity to pursue an education with their institution.

I have been provided with the most conducive environment to carry out my studies. I am utilizing facility at my disposal to ensure that I attain good grades which would allow me to pursue my dream of becoming a pilot. I am good at geography and my sciences and so I feel like my dreams are passion motivated.

I love reading storybooks and novels during my free time. I also enjoy swimming.

I hope for your continued support throughout my academic journey and when I realize my dreams I hope to give back to this community.
