Jessica is 9 years old. She lives with her parents and four siblings in Mbinguni village in Southern Tanzania. She is currently in standard 1 (the first year of primary school), she should be in standard three, but she started school late because the school is over an hour’s walk away. When Mbinguni Nursery has its own primary school she will go to school here, so she can spend less time walking to school and have more energy to study and concentrate in school.
When she is older she would like to be a teacher. At school she likes studying and helping to sweep the classrooms. At home she also likes to sweep the house. She is looking forward to starting at a new school, especially to writing.
