Map of HARD WORK IS AMUST FOR EXCELLENCE I am Rinna Indeche aged 20. I lost my dad in 2004 and remained only with my mother who though hardworking, the problems she faced singularly were overwhelming. We were 5 children against her lonely efforts since 2004, but she tried getting all of us through school. As the eldest of the 5, I decided to be the role model and did my best to pass my KCPE, then proceeded to form 1 in 2007, I had invitatio0n to join Mukumu Girls high School but ended up in Lwanda Secondary.
