Good day Coach, I hope my email finds you in a great health posture. I am a 20-year-old young man whom unfortunately, did not do well in his BGCSE examinations and became a nobody within my family as well as the community.

I spent two years idling and had nothing to do. I deem it the time of self-realisation. I reflected on what my teachers and elders lamented on regarding taking school seriously. Life was so tough until about three months ago when a friend of mine shared a Security Guard position advertisement with me. I promptly reacted to the job application and here I am. I wake up every morning to also serve.

My goal is to re-sit for my BGCSE exams so that I could improve my results and increase a possibility of enrolling for a degree in Accounting and Finance. I am passionate about being an accountant. My biggest challenge is my elder siblings, who I feel abuse me financially. It is unfortunate that they do not want to go seek employment even if I avail some opportunities to them. Every time I get paid, they flock to me like hungry vultures; everyone wanting to get a piece of my sweat. I am failing to pay for my re-take school enrolment and see out my dream of graduating.
