Hello pen pal!  How are you?  It's been a while since I've written to you... a lot has happened here in the states.  We just celebrated Halloween and are now getting ready for the next holiday - Thanksgiving!  Most importantly, we just had our presidential elections and Barack Obama won!!!  I'm not sure if you were aware, but his family is from Kenya and he will be our first African American president.  It's a very exciting time for Americans.  All of this makes me think about the future and the changes our country will experience under a new president.  As new president, he hopes to make a lot of improvements in education in the United States, which is very important for me because I plan to become a teacher in a few years and would like to see changes in our system.  Obama also would like to make a lot of changes that allow more students (near your age) to have the opportunity to go to college.  My hope is that he will provide children with the chance to go to college and get jobs that they enjoy.  What about in your country?  What kind of opportunities are there for students who would like to continue their education in Uganda?  I'm very curious to learn more about whether or not you would like to continue your education, especially because my dream is for ALL young people to get the chance to experience higher education.  It really opens up so many doors for your future...  On a more general level, I'm also curious to learn what kind of overall dreams you have for your future.  Hope to hear from you soon pen pal!
