Dear TSF Sponsors,

This is Samantha, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School, writing on behalf of Cadet! Cadet is currently in the 9th Grade, and recently, in his Life Skills classes, he's been learning about meditation and mindfulness as tools for success both in and outside the classroom. I thought you would like to hear Cadet's reflections on these topics!

"In my Life Skills classes, we’ve been learning about the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. A person with a fixed mindset doesn’t think change is possible or that he can learn new things, while a person with a growth mindset always wants to learn more. I try to use a growth mindset when I’m studying. I also learned about something else that I can use when I’m studying, and it’s called meditation. Meditation can make you feel really relaxed, and when I meditate, I try to think about only one thing and not get distracted. Meditation can help you because when you’re in an exam and you don’t know the answer, you can use meditation to help you stay relaxed and not get stressed!" - Cadet

Thank you for your support of Cadet's education at Orkeeswa School!

With gratitude,

Sam, Cadet, and Orkeeswa School
Hi TSF Sponsors!

This is Sam, the Scholarship Coordinator at Orkeeswa School, posting on Cadeth's behalf. Cadeth has been doing really well in 8th Grade this year, and has recently been reflecting on the importance of expressing and preserving culture. Here is what he had to say about his unique Maasai culture and the role it plays in his daily life.

"In our society, Maasai boys get circumcised and then they earn the respect of the community. The younger you are when you are circumcised, the more respect people have for you. I really like that once you are circumcised, you are treated like a grown man. I also like the food that the Maasai eat! My favorite is the loshoro that my mom makes for me. It is made with corn, porridge, and maize. I eat a lot of it whenever I can, especially at ceremonies."

Thank you for your support of Cadeth and Orkeeswa School!

With gratitude,

Samantha
