Quotes

"I was introduced to farming by a friend; and since then, it is an activity I enjoy doing. I look forward to going to the lime farm. Because it is up in the cool hills of St Mary, I get to relax after my farming duties; eat fruits and vegetables, and relax by a river. Those activities rejuvenate me for the next workweek" she maintained
She continued, "You are not too young to set a standard for yourself that will be the envy of others: be that spark in your class that others would want to be like; work hard to achieve your goals and use your time wisely. You may have limited resources but be content with what you have and what your parents are able to afford. Practise discipline, diligence and determination. Be grounded, do not be swayed by what friends may say. Don't prostitute your pride."
"He is very diligent and can be described as a perfectionist. He is highly ambitious and over-achieving. I don't know where he will end up, but I see him being successful at whatever he does."
