🌻How would you rate your high school years out of 10?

I would rate them at a 7/10

🌻What was the worst thing that happened to you when you were in high school?

Had to really think on this one, most of the bad times were during punishments.
Was once punished to brush my teeth with a whole tube of toothpaste by a teacher who disliked me.

🌻What was your favourite subject and why?

This is quite easy, Literature was my best subject, apart from loving to read we also had quite a cool teacher.
We enjoyed listening to her teach (she had a beautiful British accent plus she gave us alot of reign in expression and free time to read and study.
Her class never felt like a class it was an exploration.

🌻Who was your role model?

If you mean at the school (s) laughable but none.

If it’s while in high school it was Condolezza Rice ,Oprah Winfrey.

🌻What are some of the lessons or skills that you acquired from high school?

Lessons i learned early on were on friendship treat others how you would want to be treated. Loyalty, Kindness ,Giving.

I made some pretty good friends who stuck out their necks for me in high school.
They were worth it.

A skill to be honest nothing I can pinpoint especially with high school.

🌻Did you ever feel like there was a time you were treated unfairly?

Yes by a particular teacher one mentioned in question 2, always felt like she had a vendetta against me in particular.

🌻What was your favourite place at school and why?

Favourite place could have been the library but they didn’t let us talk hehehe so it became my room.
My room was always a gathering place of sorts, lots of stories, games, eating.

🌻If you had the opportunity to change anything from your high school experience what would that be?

I had a good High school experience ,I definitely would have changed the bit of getting expelled from one of the schools I went to because I did truly enjoy my time there but I was reckless and my naughtiness got the best of me but I relish all experiences I got along the journey.

🌻How would you rate your high school years out of 10?
7/10.Friendships I made during my high-school years have proved to be worth while. I also feel that freedom of expression was something that I enjoyed the most.


🌻What was the worst thing that happened to you when you were in high school?
Getting bad grades, I have never wanted to be a failure in my life, especially when it comes to academics.


🌻What was your favourite subject and why?
I enjoyed Chemistry. Apart from the fact that I was good at it, it was very practical and I found mixing chemicals, getting different colours very interesting.


🌻Who was your role model? My role model will always be my mother.


🌻What are some of the lessons or skills that you acquired from high school? I learnt that its not everyone who smiles at you, genuinely loves you. This is probably the reason I enjoy small circles because I’m very particular about people I bring closer to me. One of the skills I have gained is neve giving up. In other terms that is resilience.
I’m very patient and also a good listener which makes me vulnerable in sharing emotions with people who open up to me.


🌻Did you ever feel like there was a time you were treated unfairly? I did not receive a Christmas Dinner present from this other guy but well that was very childish.


🌻What was your favourite place at school and why? I enjoyed being in the Library. I found it peaceful and quite. I have never enjoyed crowds I guess.


🌻If you had the opportunity to change anything from your high school experience what would that be? I would have chosen commercial subjects. I have been having struggle in understanding some business terms.But like i have mentioned earlier, I never give up. I have always pushed and challenged myself to engage in totally new things in my life.

🌻How would you rate your high school years out of 10?

When I was in high school  l had  two lives, that is the hostel life and the “school area” one which we referred  to as “up there”
Up there – 8.5/10
Hostel life – 5/10


🌻What was the worst thing that happened to you when you were in high school? During the weekends the students were allowed  to watch tv, I always wanted to unwind after a busy week and the movie night was part of my weekend schedule. The girl who was in charge of entertainment  brought movie and the content was for 18+. The girls in the tv room didn’t watch the whole movie but, we were punished and our superintendent notified the disciplinary committee that we had been watching a pornography movie. We had to dig a pit the following week but, the group  of people who had watched the whole movie before us were not even punished.


🌻What was your favourite subject and why? My favourite subject was Physics, I wasn’t one of the top students but I liked it because we had a great teacher. He had a way of making the subject exciting.
