- July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Racheal said: “My favorite thing about my culture is how they show love and welcome people who come to them.

- March 30, 2020 – Racheal said fresh fruit juice is her favorite drink.
- September 1, 2019 – This Summer Racheal volunteered at a school near her home. Volunteering at the school was a way both to give back to her community and to build her skills as a teacher. She also helped her mother at home and with her garden. And Racheal was able to visit friends this summer that she hadn’t been able to see for a long time.
- May 18, 2019 – In the monthly leadership training, I learned about leadership and integrity. Now I know that leadership has nothing to do with seniority or position, title or personal attribute, but rather it’s about influencing people to do what you want them to do without moral and ethical compromise. I also learned about some ways to deal with negativity.
- February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Racheal said: “Servant leadership to me is when a leader’s intention is to serve others. That applies to my life now in many ways, like through my community impact project where I serve pupils at a nearby school, teaching them English. I also serve in discipling a group of students on campus – I help them to learn the word of God. In my career, I will implement servant leadership using the skills I gained from TNHF trainings and my university education to make projects that will serve people in my community, such as teaching the youth and inspiring them to work hard and chase their dreams. Leading in this way, the youth will be empowered, which will eventually lead to community transformation. I will also do various other projects to impact lives and serve people around me. For example, setting up charitable projects to support vulnerable people, especially the children and old people, which will be of great advantage to my community.”
