Reader of the Week – Gaseb Habakkuk, Grade 6

A few months ago on Facebook I posted a picture of this learner. He’s in grade 6 and checks out high school level books from our library. He always comes to the library with a great attitude and a smile on his face.

When I look at a book I see knowledge flowing through my brain. What interests me is when I read a specific book it makes me want to continue the whole book.

Science books, especially animal books. They inspire me to try new things and learn about new animals and see new things.

My goal is to finish school and be an explorer or a lawyer. My dream is to be in a tough situation and make the best of it. I also want America to see Namibia as a place where smart kids are.
