Dear TSF Sponsors,

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School, writing on behalf of Amina. Amina is learning a lot in the 8th Grade this year, and recently, in her Life Skills classes, she has been learning about the importance of exploring and identifying different aspects of her personal identity. She wrote this beautiful poem about herself, and I thought you would like to read it!

Hi, TSF Sponsors!

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School. Amina is a bright and confident 7th grader who is always smiling and usually the first student to raise her hand in class after every question. Recently, in her Life Skills class, Amina wrote a poem about her home and community. I thought you might like to read it to get a bit more insight into her values and interests!

Thank you for your support of Amina and Orkeeswa School.

With gratitude,

    Kenya

    Agnes is the second born child in a family of six. Despite facing many challenges, she managed to emerge second top student in her school. Her poor background did not deter her from achieving her goal. She is very determined to succeed in life and become the first surgeon in her village. Her father is a woodcarver while her mother is a house wife. Due to lack of market for wood carvings her father has not been able to provide for the big family. This coupled with frequent droughts has seen the family lack basic needs like food. Agnes is very focused and believes that no man is limited in this world.
