Dear Celene,

To start with, I would like to let you know my data. I am Gabriel and I am fifteen years old. I hail from Ijero in Ekiti State, Nigeria. My nationality is Nigeria. I speak English, French and my native language, Yoruba.

I am also very religious as you are and I don`t wish to miss a service in the church. My parents and elder brothers always work together in order to achieve my future ambition .I would like to be a lawyer so as to render selfless service to the people and safeguard their rights.

My mentor has always been the Chief Justice of my country land (Nigeria) because of his vantage position in the country. The way and manner he is been respected always motivate me and make me think of getting to such position one day.

In my leisure time, I always wish to browse with my PC and get connected to the people. I always wish to listen to music and visit people. In my school, what motivate me most is the `I CAN` statement teachers do say to encourage me.

In my conclusion, I always wish to eat the local food that is pounded yam in addition with melon soup. I do not wish to go to restaurants .

How are you doing academically too? How is Law profession in your country?

I will be willing to hear more from you.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Frank,

It’s quite fascinating to know that we bear the same name. Anyway, my name is Frank but my friends call me finest probably because I look cute. I am from Nigeria, I was born in Lagos,a city in Nigeria. Indeed, one of the biggest cities in Nigeria. I speak English and two other local dialects.

I love sciences and hate Arts Subjects with passion. I wish to be a medical doctor, a neurosurgeon, like my mentor Benjamin Carson. My values are; writing, and researching.

I love people who never give up trying. But my interests are limitless. I am a very optimistic person. I have a girlfriend whose name is Mercy we have been together since we were in grade five. She’s caring. She is 19 years now. Well she might seem a little old but she is very humble, that’s why we have been friends this long. I think you would like her.

Sometimes I wonder how schools over there look like. Well, my school has facilities which aid learning to a great extent. My school happens to be the biggest school in this state (Ekiti State, Nigeria), however, also the oldest school. An average class is about 38 students .We often engage in extra curricula activities every Friday. When we were in grade 10 we were given laptop computer by the Governor of our State. Isn’t that cool and good?

I love you and I know you would be one of the greatest people around. I would love to be your pen pal. Take care.

Yours sincerely,
