Lightness Sumaye
When I was in a bicycle accident, I got some injuries on my left leg. I have learnt to be careful when riding. I felt proud of myself when I was chosen to be among of students interviewed by WEF. My happiest moment is when I knew I could speak English well. It helps me in my exams and now I am doing well.
My dream is to be a civil engineer. I will study science subjects to reach my dream. When I am a civil engineer, I will help my parents to pay school fees of my young brother. I will provide support and learning materials for WEF students. If I could change my country, I would make sure the country has modern buildings and a modern transport system.

Hello Students,
Hope you all are doing well. I know you are all busy preparing for exams and are working very hard, and I commend your determination. Good luck on your exams!
Additionally, this Thursday is Thanksgiving, a holiday in the US. It represents a feast between Plymouth settlers and Native Americans hundreds of years ago. It also is a time to be thankful of everything that you have. Personally, I am thankful for having access to a good education.
What is one thing you are thankful for?
Dear All,
I hope you are staying safe and healthy! Here in California, the Corona Virus cases have surged and the Covit color code has changed from orange to purple. Purple, or Tier 1, indicates that the virus is widespread in the county — with more than seven cases per 100,000 residents or more than 8% of tests results reported positive over seven days. Red (Tier 2) indicates “substantial” spread of the virus, while orange (Tier 3) indicates “moderate” spread and yellow (Tier 4) indicates “minimal” spread of the virus in the county. Most children are doing 100% distance learning at home. They attend each class on line through zoom on their computers. It is very difficult for children to be sheltered at home and not to have any social interactions with other kids. We hope and pray that the Corona Virus can get controlled and the vaccine can come soon so that everyone can resume life back to normal. I hope that you all stay safe and healthy. Enjoy your school as most kids in California can’t even go to school. God bless you all!
Dear student,

Time flies, This year went by so quickly. It is almost the end of the semester or the school year for you. Most of you are either about to take your National exam or the end of year exam. I wish you all will do your best and perform well. "Education is the passport of the future". Only you can control your destiny. Good luck no matter what you do. Pray to God to guide you along your way.

There were so many things that happened this year. There were presidential elections in both Tanzania and the US. In your country, the election went well. In the US, we still have issues with our election results, and we hope these will be resolved soon. COVID-19 has been really bad in the US. We have more than 1M people affected and many have died. It looks like the vaccines will be available soon, but it will take time to make enough for everybody. We are all looking forward to the year 2021. We wish for a better year ahead of us.

On a happier note, it is the holiday season now. Next week is Thanksgiving in the US. We thank God that everything good that has happened to us this year. Remember always to be thankful and appreciative. Then by the end of December it is Christmas and people exchange gifts. Children are very happy to get the gift that they wish to have. Then the New Year comes along soon after.

I wish that you learn more and be smarter than the year before. I wish you happiness, health, and that your wishes and dreams will come true.

Here autumn is just passing through and winter is coming around the corner. The weather is getting colder and colder every day. I would like to show some of our fall photos. Hope you like it.
Dear students,
I heard some of you have already done the national exams and some of you are about to take the exams. I just wanted to wish you the best in doing the exams. I know that you have worked really hard for the exams, and I do hope to hear the good news from you regarding your exam results. May God bless you!
Hello Everyone,
Thank you for sharing about the election in your country. We are also in the middle of presidential election in the U.S. I pray for peace in all the countries especially during the election time. It is okay for people to have different opinions about the candidates that they support, but it is not okay to have hatred toward each other. Let us agree to disagree and pray for peace around the world.
