Powerful Encouragement – Mercy Barasa’s Poem
I think of two words every time I read Mercy Barasa’s poem: Fire and Optimism. Through her words, in just three stanzas, she is a leader and she is humble. “Being limitless through every limitation,” says it all.
Mercy Barasa earned Second Place in Lenana Girls’ High School (Kitale, Kenya) Sixth Annual Writing Competition sponsored by Lift the Lid. This is a big accomplishment, but even bigger is the effect her words will have on all those who read them. I’m proud to support her and every student at Lenana in ever becoming their best. Thank you, again, for giving our students the opportunity to share their talent, hard work, and passion. By caring, you give them the chance to shine!
