My Form One experience has been amazing; I have learnt how to use a computer and I currently know pretty much about computers. Many thanks to the Wema community for giving me an opportunity to study, unlike my experience in Primary school I need not worry about school fees and my basic needs since you take care of all this.

I scored an A- in my end of year exams a grade of which I'm determined to improve on by focusing on the subjects I'm weak in; agriculture and geography. I would like to be a lawyer in future as I feel strong in my humanities and language subjects (English and Kiswahili).

During my free time I like reading novels available in our school library. We participate in debates which help boost our Command of English, public speaking skills and presentation.

I like playing football during our games sessions.

Thank you for your continued support.
