at her graduation.
Esupat recently graduated with one of the highest honours awarded in Form 4, which will result in her selection for one of the top schools in Tanzania. (Achieving academic success within the Tanzanian school system is difficult; the failure rate has been quoted as high as 70%.) Esupat is grateful to her sponsor for enabling her return to school, but she also knows that it was her own hard work that brought this amazing success.
When we met with Esupat, it was a day we will never forget, as she radiated with happiness and pride in her achievement. Esupat expressed her commitment to continue her learning so that she might realize her dream of supporting her Maasai community as a nurse or doctor.

When asked the secret to her success, Esupat responded without hesitation:
#2. Study hard.
#3. Focus without interruption.
#4. Don’t waste time.
#5. Make plans to reach your goals and stick with them.
#6. Focus on what is in front of you, not what is behind you.
