What is your tribe/mother tongue?
What is your favourite thing about school?
Being with my friend and doing our homework and fun activities together. I also enjoy when we have entrepreneurship day at school.
Who lives with you at your house? What are some of the chores you have to do at home?
I live with my sisters, brother aunt and uncle. They usually give me chores like cooking and cleaning.
What would you like people in America to know about your country, Namibia?
That what Americans think it’s like is probably not what it’s like. Once they come visit you’ll find it interesting and colourful.
What are some of your goals and dreams? What do you want to be when you grow up?
My dream is to be a heart surgeon because heart surgeons are needed because Namibians have a lot of heart problems.
What is your favourite thing about Namibia? What is your favorite thing about your culture/tribe?
The forest, food, colours and animals. There are things like this you can’t find anywhere else but here.
Who is your hero and why?
My biggest hero is my sister Girlie. She is an inspiring, talented and confident person.
