Hi Sharon,
Hope you are doing well. Am happy to hear from you.Have been participating in the mentor sections and I have learnt a lot e.g how to improve in nurturing our careers.What I like about this section is that we have speakers from different parts of the world who motivate us on how to improve in our career paths.I will take great care. Byeeeeeeeee.................
Greetings Nthenya!

I am so pleased to hear that you've been able to participate in some of the Kenya Connect study sessions. It's been hard for children around the world to be missing so much school. I hope in addition to studying, you are taking time to read. Reading is the #1 way to help students do better in school. Did you know that children who read for fun do better in school? I read part of a book every night before I go to sleep and I read the newspaper in the morning.

Have you participated in any of the Mentoring Sessions? What did you like best about them? Do you know what career you might like?

Today it is rainy and chilly in Maryland. Soon the leaves will fall off the trees and winter will come.

Take care! Sharon
