Obiya Solomon

I am 16 years old. I am enrolled in boarding school at Bishop Cypriano. I’m happy to be in boarding school because I am encouraged to study. During my breaks, I join in discussions with other students. My toughest challenge has been understanding everything and maintaining my grades. I overcome these challenges by consulting teachers for help and by developing a spirit of competition. This helps me pull up and improves my grades.

If I wasn't at school, I would be a miserable child who doesn't know how to write or speak English. I would end up being a street child. Someone might be surprised to know that I have hope of becoming an engineer. I want to accomplish my studies and help my parents the way they help me and other people.
