I have had a very good week.
Firstly, I had to do a presentation in-front of some very important people at my school. There were seven of us applying for the Old Wymondhamians Travel Award of £750. We had ten minutes to talk and about five minutes of questions. I discussed Project Trust, the problems in Uganda, especially the drop-out rate of primary school students, my fundraising and why I would benefit from the award. (Did you know that Uganda has the highest drop-out rate in East Africa? It is pretty shocking.)
To my delight I was chosen to receive this award and I am very grateful and I am so happy to keep the link with my school through to Uganda and on return to England.
Also this week I got an art offer from Manchester and yesterday I received a letter from CCW (Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon) offering me a place for my Art Foundation Course. I am over the moon about this as art is my greatest passion and I am looking forward to doing my course after my year in Uganda.
Thank you also to whoever anonymously donated £20.00 to my year in Uganda. I am so appreciative. It really means a lot to me.
