Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

An Arrogant Soul

This is a story that happened during the period when I was in primary school. There was boy who was named "soul" due to the way he treated others at school, he was very bully and arrogant. But his real names was Duncan. Soul was always found on the wrong side, he was build up and he was more older than the rest of the pupils. He was not only arrogant to his fellow pupils but also to the teachers in the school. I remember very well one bad thing he did when he set the school office on fire. He was later counciled and given leadership, his name was also changed from Soul to Paul because he had changed and was now one of the best disciplined who handled performance also changed drastically and by the time we sat for K.C.P.E exams and the results were out he became one of the best with 415 out of 500 marks.
