Sabita wants to be a teacher when she grows up. English is her favorite subject because she says she likes to study English. Ganga Bohora is her favorite hostel teacher because Sabita says Ganga teaches well. Health is her least favorite subject because it is difficult for her. She wants to learn more Math and English because she feels that at the hostel they do not get enough time to learn those two subjects comprehensively. She helps her classmates with Nepali lessons because she says she excels in the subject.
Her favorite thing about the hostel is that it provides her with a good environment to study. Sabita does wish for more textbooks and notebooks. She enjoyed that she was able to learn more Math and English with volunteers and wishes for more in the future.
