Hi Nuura,

I also enjoy studying science and making jokes with my friends! We have the same dream of one day being able to give back to the somali youth. I hope you have a great school year and reach your goals.

Hello Nuura,
I am so excited to see that you are advancing to the next grade in school, grade 9! It has been over one year since I wrote last. I am happy for your progress. Here is a photo of me writing, just like I am writing to you now. We keep you in our thoughts! I am not sure if you are able to see these messages but just in case, I wanted to send it here. You are special! Best Wishes, Bethany
