Quotes from Christine herself:
“I will not stop thanking you for the good foundation you have laid for us.”
“My dream is reached.”
“I promise to become someone who will also help the young ones share the love that KCF showered us with.”
“Without KCF I wouldn’t be happy today because I attained my degree and that makes me proud because many out here don’t make it to the University.”
