Susan is the second-born child in a family of three. Her eldest brother is in high school. Two years back her mother was diagnosed with a heart disease that has taken toll on their meagre earnings. Their father is a casual construction worker and everything he earns goes to treating their ailing mother. Her elder brother has been out of school due to huge fees balance. Despite the family challenges, Susan has kept her dream alive. She has constantly worked hard in school and her dream is to become a doctor so as to help people like her mother. She believes in Nelson Mandela's quote that education is the greatest weapon that one can use to change the world.

Hello Susan--

It is so good to hear from you! I heard that the virus numbers have increased in Kenya. I continue to pray for your country. I have gotten vaccinated to help prevent the disease for me an others. I'm hoping that more vaccine reaches Kenya soon.

It is spring in Maryland which means that the temperatures are warmer and the trees have been flowering and leafing out. We have different flowers in our yard blooming too. It's such a beautiful time of the year. We have also planted a vegetable garden with tomatoes, peppers, radishes, and aubergine.

I am currently reading a book about a village in England in 1066. It's been interesting learning about that time period and how people lived. Are you reading any books? What types of books do you like?

I've attached a picture of some daffodils in front of the church I attend. It's a beautiful flower that blooms each year.

Take care, keep studying, and read as much as possible. Sharon
