Wish me luck...!

Dear friends,

"My name is Tracey...and yesterday, my name was mentioned in the radio stations. But for the wrong reasons!!

"I was among the few candidates who sat for their final exams as teen mothers...having conceived two months before sitting for the exams!

"A few months ago, I was almost expelled from school after they discovered I was pregnant. It took the intervention of GEMINI to save me and to ensure I was still enrolled as a candidate for the final exams. I had to stay with Stella for the three months prior to the exams.

"I was offered a personal tutor and a part-time nurse to help me cope with my revision as well as be able to attend pre-natal clinic.

"Its been a long road but I hope the worst is over. As I look at my baby, named Ella (a tribute to Stella's great work), I know I'm still going to achieve my goal and become a social worker.

"On behalf of all the teen mum candidates who sat for their exams this month, I would like to request each of you to offer a special prayer so that when results are announced, we will be among the top candidates.

"I also wish to express my deep thanks for all your support...both moral and financial..we really appreciate and pray for each of you.

"Thanks so much...
