Fulfilling a Promise

Fulfilling a promise is a good way to gain trust from the little ones. A promise was made to a tenth grader who obtained the highest average in the senior high division, that a new Biology book was going to be given to him. 

When he received the book he was asked what the driving force behind his achievement in a community where most of his peers seem reluctant to compete coupled with life's challengers. He said, "I am focused during lectures, I copy my notes correctly and I put more time to studying. I hope to have training in Biology and Chemistry in college in preparation for Medical School where I want to study General Medicine and become a Medical Doctor."

He wants to be a doctor because of the present tropical challenges with which the population is faced. His being a doctor will help reduce health risks for his people. He believes giving back to his people this way will make the world a better place.
