Beatrice is an inspiration to all the runners in the club. As a first year student she was last in the school over 5000m. Instead of letting her poor performance discourage her, she used it to motivate her. She trained every day, even when she was at home and didn't have any classmates around to push her. Her hard work paid off. As a second year student she not only became the best 5000m runner in the school, she became one of the best in the province. After graduating she went on to place second in the 3000m at the U-18 World Championships.

Jessica has a genuine passion for running. She wanted to run in primary school, but she never had the chance. Nobody at her school practiced, and she didn't have any running shoes.

Since then she has learned the work ethic needed to run, and she has shown tremendous improvement. She continued to improve all the way through graduation.
