Family Background

By a female, 46-60 years old , in Busia, Kenya
Map of FAMILY BACKGROUND After getting a C+ in KCSE, John never gave up on life. His family background was not financial stable and the probabilities of him, being taken to a university were so deam. Many people advised him to go back to high school and be enrolled in a form three class so that he may get a good grade that would enable him to join a public university. Though a good idea, the problem was tha their would be no school fees even if the went back to a high class. One day while reading a newspaper, he got an idea of applying to all universities across the world for a sponsorship deal. Yhough tiresome, John did his best to apply to over fifty universities in the world and this he had by replies but he never lost his faith. on the 12th of June 2002 at around 10:30 a.m, his prayers were answered when he received a letter from Havard University offering him a sponsorship to study law in the university with everything catered for by the university. That was a miracle that John ever recalls and gives thanks to God. Read more.
