Samjana is eight years old, in the Lower Kindergarten class, and is thankful for the hostel timetables and agenda/scheules. Samjana has big, bright eyes and a willing spirit, and responds immediately to positive attention. She loves drill exercises and being called on in class.
She has been at the hostel for eight months. She comes from the village of Thehe where she lives with her father, step-mother and younger sister. Her step-mother has two daughters and one son, all younger than Samjana, from a previous marriage. Both her father and step-mother are farmers.
Samjana’s favorite color is pink, her favorite animal is a horse, and her favorite activity is dance. She enjoys Math class the most, and wants to grow up to become a Math and English teacher.
