In his message to his daughter, he highlighted his immense pride in her adventurous spirit and her determination to pursue higher education overseas.

“Dear daughter, I want you to know how proud I am of the adventurous spirit within you. Watching you spread your wings and embark on this exciting journey to study abroad fills me with happiness for all the opportunities and experiences that await you,” Sonko conveyed.

Furthermore, Mike Sonko revealed that his wife, Primrose, will accompany their daughter during the initial months of her transition to the new environment.

“Yet, at the same time, a part of me feels a profound sadness, realizing how much I’ll miss your presence, our daily conversations, and the warmth of your smile. The house will feel emptier without your laughter and that of your mum, who will also be away with you for four months as you adapt to the new environment and culture,” he added.

In conclusion, Mike Sonko wished his daughter a safe journey and abundant success and happiness in her new academic endeavour.

He concluded his touching post with words of affection, saying, “Safe travels, and may your journey and new life be filled with success and happiness. I love you so much.”
