When I was announced as the best learner of the year 2014, I was overwhelmed with happiness and joy because I made my family proud. What made me more happier was that most of the learners in my school were complaining about how hard grade 9 was and that few people pass, but I showed them that there is nothing impossible in this world. It is said that, firm determination can move heaven and earth, so if you put your mind and heart to what you are doing, surely you may achieve greatness.
