School has been more difficult in recent months, but my family and friends have helped me get on. I've reinforced what I'd already learnt, confronted new challenges, improved my way of studying and also participated in extra-curricular projects and activities. I'm now trying to prepare myself for the next school year. Thank you!
Hello. I'm now in my second year studying for the baccalaureate. I'd like to thank The School Fund for offering me your support so I can continue my studies and improve my academic life. Thank you!
This year I'm starting some new subjects and I think some of them will be quite difficult. I'm looking forward to the new challenges and I'm really happy to be back at school with my friends. I would like to thank everyone for helping me to continue studying. Thank you!
My school has not yet re-opened after the pandemic, so I have begun the year studying from home. I've got used to virtual clases but I still miss my friends and having a life away from home. I hope it will soon be possible to go back to face-to-face classes and normality.
This year's been a bit difficult for me as I started to study more advanced topics which are complicated online. Despite all the problems I was able to do all my work and produce all the portfolios I had to, and I got good marks. I am very grateful for the scholarship because without it I wouldn't have been able to finish this year in school. Thank you.
The change which the pandemic has brought has made me sad because we don't know how long it will last. At the beginning, the online classes were difficult for me. I prefered face-to-face lessons as they are more dynamic and they include lots of different ways of learning. I wanted to see my friends again too. But as time has gone on I've adapted to the online classes, because I want to learn and to continue studying. Thank you very much for being concerned about me and how I am feeling, and for all your support.
Hello. Thank you for your support. I and my family are fine but the lock-down has been diificult. We are closed in and I can't see my friends, but it's been nice spending more time with my family. We have had to adjust to having less money and that has changed our way of life. I think that in the future we will all have to learn to follow the rules to prevent the spread of the virus, so our lives can improve and we can return to normality.
Hello. Last year was very difficult for me because I was in a new school and a new city. I used to live with my grandparents in a town called Loja but now I live in Quito with my parents. The classes here are more demanding. I managed to overcome my academic limitations though and at the end of the year I won a diploma for being one of the top three students in my class. Now I've got some good friends and I like all the different subjects we study.

    Notable experiences in my life are, first, passing my standard seven examination and, second, entering secondary school. My most difficult experience was when I started to learn English. I have learned that if you want to do something, you have to work hard. I felt proud was when I entered secondary school. My most memorable and happiest thoughts are from when I celebrated at my birthday party. My dream is to be an electrical engineer. I will get there through studying hard and doing well in science subjects. If I had the power to change my country, I would like to improve the electricity supply especially in rural areas because there are shortages of electric power.

    The experience that I had early in life was to score good marks in my class, whereby I got good grades which encouraged me to study hard in class. The difficult experience that occurred in my life was an accident on my way back home. I learnt that I should not play again in bad areas. In my life I am proud of myself. I was getting low marks in class but now I have managed to improve a lot. The most memorable and happiest thing in my life is to play football. It exercises my body regularly and hence strengthens my body system. My dream is to become a mechanical engineer. The best way to reach it is through studying hard in school, in physics, mathematics and chemistry. If I had power in my country, I would change the education system of the country so that it helps graduates to depend more on self-employment.

    I have experience planting vegetables because my parents do that. Also, we have a garden at our home. Therefore, that is experience I have had in life. Apart from that experience, I also had a difficult experience when I failed my geography exam. That enabled me to learn how to cooperate with other students. I was so proud of myself when I performed well in my national exam. The memorable and happiest moment in my life will be when I reach my dream of being pilot. I will be so happy. My biggest dream is to be a pilot. I will get there through studying hard in physics, geography, and mathematics. After reaching my dream, I will help my parents to modify their cultivation system and to become professional farmers. From there they can expand the area of cultivation into a large plantation. Once I get a chance to have the power to change my country, I will build many airports in each region and some districts. This will help in the flexibility of transportation in my country.
