Bayonetta continues to glimpse her career at Oasis and wants to thank Linda Pike for always being there for encouraging her to do better in school and all the staff at Oasis Academy for helping her get through her final year.
What is her advice to future students? “If they need help or if they are struggling with something, they should not hesitate to ask or get help from teachers. They should also keep their goals in mind and believe in themselves.”
