My name is AMBE Precious Anastasia LUM. I am fourteen years old, Born on the 19 of January 2004 in Yaoundé centre region of Cameroon. I hail from Bafut in the North west region of Cameroon. I am the first child in a family of 3. I have a younger brother aged 12 and a younger sister aged 8. I school in FRANKY Comprehensive Secondary School Yaoundé. I came to Franky in form 3 after two years of secondary school studies in Presbyterian Secondary School in Bafut in the North West region.

My parents had to take me away from Bafut in November 2016 when problems started in the two Anglophone regions of Cameroon and children were forced to stay away from school. Fortunately for me my parents live and work in Yaoundé so I had to leave the boarding house and live with my parents so I could go to school.

I had a very smooth nursery and primary education. I did nursery in Franky where I am today, did primary school in Jumping Jacks Bilingual Primary School in Yaoundé. Here I did primary one to five and was promoted to primary six during the first term because of my brilliant performance.

Class two third best pupil, class three first in academics, Class four, first in academics; class five, first and promoted to primary six during the first term. Form two, best in English, Form three, best in English, Form four third position.
