  • I would really like to see the day when I see that our country progress.

I think the only way that it can happen is through quality education. The state of education here in my country is not looking good . To remedy that I think children should have access to computers because I believe the internet has all the information you need the only question is how to harness that. By doing so , you will gain knowledge and knowledge is power , I believe that.
