Michael's speech made me realize that even in the toughest times you need to look forward because if you work hard enough you can get anywhere in life. The experience has showed me that if I put in the time and effort into something I want to achieve I can achieve it.

First of all I want to tell the Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation thanks for everything you do for the school. You are Mighty in Character! You are a hardworking person of God. You are mighty and great to me and powerful in character. God bless you forever.
