What is your favourite food in your culture and why?
I don’t really like the food in my culture but I love our bread called “Rooster brood.” It is served with a lot of butter.
What do you think has made Namibia a better place and why?
In my opinion it’s the fact that we have volunteer teachers. We learn so much from them. We learn extraordinary things from them. Like Mrs. Shusko she taught us so much. We are now better than the higher level grade 11 English. We are called Ordinary Level but she calls us Extraordinary Level.
