Askita Bhandari

Favorite Subject: Nursery

Askita is seven years old, in the Nursery class, and is thankful for teachers. She is often overlooked but actually a very smart student. She tends to hesitate in answering questions and seems nervous, but more often than not she typically has all the right answers. She loves any recognition for her work and answers in turn with a content smile. During play hours Askita will sit to the side and watch others play, being the shy girl that she is.

She has been at the hostel for eight months, coming from the village of Thehe. Both her parents are farmers and she has one younger brother and one older brother. Her favorite color is green, her favorite animal is a rabbit and she likes to dance. Her favorite subject is English and Askita wants to be a doctor  when she grows up.
