I love and treasure my education because it will make me who I aspire to be someday - a mechanical engineer. I also love Tennis because it helped me to come to Sadili, a place where I can improve my game. This happened when, Dr. Liz Odera came to my club in Uganda, and she coached over 20 of us free of charge and chose two of us to join Sadili's players. This happened in 2009 when I was 12 years old. I was really scared that I would not be picked, because I wasn’t the best, but when my name was called out, I became overjoyed because I knew that this was my one big chance in life. When I came to Sadili, my tennis wasn't that good but now, I have tremendously improved and this year, Malezi called me to play for the school team for the second year running in the national school games, where my partner Jamin Luvembe and I won the District, County , Regionals and Nationals, and represented Kenya at the East Africa Ball games in Lira, Uganda, where we won the doubles title again. I have also had a great chance to play for Uganda in the 14 and Under Circuit in April, I and I am now number 2 in the Under 16 boys in the Tennis Africa Cup (www.tennisafrica.info). I hope to perform even better next year, so that I my scholarship can be extended and I can remain in the Africa Talent Training Academy - SATTA. I have seen many tennis players who behave very badly, and my dream is to become a well educated professional tennis player!
