I am a girl in remote village of Mahavilachchiyaya village. It is 40 kilometers away from Anuradhapura city. At the suitable age I started my schooling. I like studies very much. Every day I go to school. When I was in grade 4 a new teacher came to our class. He started checking our nails. He advised us to keep our bodies clean. He taught English songs and English dramas. We liked them. Later we knew he was our English teacher. His name is Mr. Nandasiri Wanninayaka. He taught us English well. Before his arrival, we didn’t like English. But after his arrival English became our favorite subject. Soon we stared a journal.. Its name was Horizon. That was begun of Horizon Lanka Foundation. I belong to the first batch of Horizon Lanka students . My name is Iresha Dilhani and completed my 18 on the 4th of November. My first education discontinuity succeed in 2004. It was the Ordinary Level examination. My results were best. I could get 4 “A” passes include English and 5 “C” passes. I am found to say that if I wasn’t a Horizon student, I will not get “A” pass for English. Now I am Advanced Level student in our village school in Arts stream. I am doing Political Science, Sinhala and Buddhist civilization. My favorite is Political science why the society becomes our lab. Then we can do some research with happy. My parents are farmers. They work had to make our lives a success. I think my parents are the best in this world. I hope to treat them well after becoming a successful citizen in this country. It is my duty. My family members are living happily. We have some problems. But we not moved. We live happily. I have many hobbies like reading books and newspapers, collecting stamps and articles about animals and birds, writing to pen pals and e-friends, talking to friends in English and cracking jokes, playing, dancing, participating in debates and making handicrafts.I have selected reading books as my hobby since it helps me to concentrate the mind. And also we can collect many facts about the world by collecting stamps and articles. And we can improve our writing by writing to pen pals. By talking to friends in English we are able to improve our English knowledge. Participating in debates is also a fine hobby that gives us knowledge. Usually I participate in all debates in our school.
I hope to live in the society respectfully. Therefore, I would like to improve my inborn talent for speech. I am training my self for that particular purpose. That is because I hope that it will assist me in my future career. I get the assistance of my teachers, parents, and friends for this. So, I should be thankful to them. My best computer program is Programming. It is very interesting why we can crate own ideas. Unfortunately I couldn’t get regular education about programming. At the moment Mr. Nirosh who a teacher in Horizon Lanka Academy teaches when his is free. I wanna follow a reputed programming course. I try to in my best to succeed it. Then I can become a good programmer in the future.
