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

Knowledge Is The Best.

Our country kenya was a country of many opportunities.But if you had to get an opportunity,you had to be well educated.Our teacher,was a very bad teacher but in his version he said he was a noble and kind person.He said that his main purpose was to help us succeed in life,but many did not believe his words. He also added that he had experienced the outside world.Indeed he had,but many did not listen.He said that in order to succeed,you must have the skill of knowledge.I started paying ken attention to what he was teaching.When time grew older i was one of the top performing students in the country. When i went for a job application,i was employed in one of the biggest company in the country.Indeed,you may discriminate the knowledge of others,but you do not know what it means to you.
