Patrick is the first-born son in a family of five children. He has one brother and three sisters. All his siblings are in primary school.
His parents are farmers, they grow maize for food and cotton as a cash crop. Due to lack of proper agriculture inputs which require money, the family does not usually realize better yields.
Education is the hope for the better future for the children. Patrick loves Mathematics and although he is in his first year of secondary education, he hopes he will continue to do well in Mathematics and other subjects.
When he finishes school, Patrick would like to become a Teacher. During his free time, he likes playing football with his colleagues.
