We are pleased to announce the Salutatorian and Valedictorian honor graduates for the HOPE School Class of 2017. We want to congratulate Nataline Olang for being selected as the Class of 2017 Valedictorian and Doricah Okubo for being named the 2017 Salutatorian. These high honors are well deserved and given with great happiness. Please join us in congratulating these two outstanding women.
Nataline shares how she managed to overcome difficult circumstances and succeed despite them. She says, "My journey has not been a smooth one and the many challenges I went through almost got the best of me but I kept on pushing and I am glad I did because they made me stronger. When I begun this course I was pregnant and employed, and finding time for the course work was not easy. In fact, finding a balance in my life after I became a mother was a major problem for a while. My house was broken into and my laptop was one of the things that I lost. I also lost a very close friend of mine, I had to resign from my job, and with being a parent now I was faced with house help drama. From the few challenges I have mentioned, you can see I went through quite a lot, but I thank God for His faithfulness and I appreciate the drive that I have had of finishing strong.
Please join us in congratulating these two outstanding women, along with the entire graduation Class of 2017.
