To Miss Hope Wall,
Thank you on behalf of the community of Wakapoa, in Guyana, where your service was provided with the most humbleness of heart.
I guess words could never justify yours works as well as our appreciation for the service among other things which you have either provided or started in the community.Been borned and grown in Wakapoa i'm a testomony to the challenges that face the community.
I'm now living in the United States and for me you have set me a great example as well as a challenge to develop my self and to do as much as i possible can to make the life of the people of Wakapoa more productive.
So one again Miss Hope, we thank you
Djeon Cornelius
