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

    Padre excelled in primary school and was ranked number four in his class. However, with six children to take care of, his family struggles to make ends meet.
