I am a form 1 student and I have a good plan for my future. The only challenge has been skipping classes ever since I was in primary school due to lack of fees and this has affected my performance. The thought of receiving these transfers gives me a great sense of relief because I have the confidence of clearing my school fees on time. This will guarantee me a better learning environment and hence, improved results. Achieving this means a better destiny for me because I will stand a good chance of securing a decent job.
What is the happiest part of your day?
A new school! I recently joined secondary school, a dream that I see to have come true because it has always been my desire. This has warmed my heart and I am always feeling blessed. I, therefore, consider this as what has brought me joy.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The thought of not knowing how to raise school fees is what eats up my mind. Considering that my parents are jobless, I already applied for bursaries but again, this has never materialized since I am yet to be awarded. This has stressed me a lot and I have the fear of missing classes. Hence, I consider financial instability as my greatest challenge.
