Hello. I'm just starting to study for the baccalaureate so school seems more serious! I'm going to try and get good marks in all the subjects we have to study. There are some new ones too.
Thank you for your kindness in giving me so many opportunities again this year.
This new school year I'm making an effort to stay on top of all my school and homework. I didn't have any problems at all last year and I improved my results.

I thought I would be able to return to face-to-face classes this term, but it hasn't been possible because of safety issues, but I'm going to keep on trying my best to get good marks.

    I am the fourth of five children. My father works at a local factory as a casual laborer. He is a hardworking man and I admire him a lot. However, the meager earnings he receives from the factory cannot sustain quality education for all of us. I hope that some day I will become a science teacher or lecturer and build my family a better house
