    I am very proud of these young people. Education is the key to break the chain of poverty. To Javed Seaman hearts off to you and you need a double thumbs up being the only male. It saddens me to see so many of our young men choosing the faster lane to become rich and just a few are able to stay on it since they become victims. My hope and desire is see an improved ratio in the future.
