My name is Onyeka, the fourth son in my family of six children.  My father was a trader and likewise is my mother.   After the death of my father at Maiduguri in Borno state during religious riot, I came to Stephen Centre through Voice of the Christian Martyrs, which is the parent body of the Stephen Centre International.

I came with two of my younger sisters. We arrived the school in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state, on September 2006 and I was admitted into Senior Secondary one Class.  Though I was in sciences, I was almost handicapped academically due to the difference in education standard of where I came from.

Through the help of my good teachers, and also due to the fact that Voice of the Christian Martyrs gave us food, shelter and clothing for free which provided me with a lot of study time, I was able to improve at great length in my studies.
The school, apart from educating in school subjects also taught me how to live with standard moral attitude.

I graduated in the year 2009 and I was very happy when my WAEC result was out.  I passed all my papers, though I passed through difficult times.  I had a very wonderful experience while I was in the school hostel.
I am currently in a University in Nigeria studying Science Laboratory Technology with the hope of switching to Medical line or Engineering.  I live a happier life than would have been the case if I had not come across the Voice of the Christian Martyrs after my father's death.

Thanks to God Almighty, Voice of the Christian Martyrs and good people all over the world who have been remembering those in trouble as if they were in that trouble with them.  God bless you all, Amen.
