At 21 years old, Peterson achieved a significant milestone by advancing to the tenth grade, demonstrating exemplary performance in his studies. Known for his vibrant personality, he effortlessly blends humor with seriousness, keeping his classmates entertained while maintaining focus when necessary. Beyond the classroom, Peterson dedicates his time to volunteering with Girl Power Africa, showcasing his compassion and commitment to community service. However, amidst his achievements, Peterson grapples with the profound loss of his mother and two uncle this year, a devastating blow to his world. Despite this hardship, he finds solace and support in his aunt’s home, where he resides. Driven by a desire to make a difference, Peterson aspires to become a police officer, channeling his resilience and determination towards a brighter future.
