Dhankali is seven years old, in Lower Kindergarten, and is thankful for teachers. Dhankali has a great spirit, always smiling and always eager to learn. She loves being called on in class and always pops a smile before answering a question. She will follow you around and look up eagerly at you – she is waiting for recognition and is ecstatic when you give her attention.
She has been at the hostel for eight months. Both her parents are farmers and she has one older sister and three younger sisters. Her older brother passed away previously from undisclosed reasons.
Her favorite color is yellow, her favorite animal is a cow and her favorite activity is dancing. She enjoys English class the most and wants to grow up to be a nurse.
