Dear Francisca: I am sharing my thoughts to say to you that I am not passing judgment on "how and why I did not win". What I am saying to you is that I am proud of the fact that you were motivated to enter the contest in the first place. My dear you are a winner in my book. Please keep on studying, value education and always strive for academic excellence.

I am going to leave you with these words from the late legendary Curtis Mayfield songwriter composer extraordinaire "continue to be a winner all of you".
