Emma lives with her two older brothers and she is the last born of three children. She lives with her parents, who have a bread shop in her village! Emma loves to read books, learning, and singing in the choir!

In August, Emma took an exam to see if she would qualify to be enrolled in Mvera Girls Secondary School, a very prestigious girl’s secondary school in Malawi. She ended up scoring second highest out of all the girls who took the exam!

Emma is very passionate about her education and wants to pursue nursing in the future. Her goal is to help as many people as she can.

Emma S. Update!

Update for Emma S.:

While in Malawi in September, Good Soil Partners staff was able to bring Emma to her new
school – Mvera Girls Secondary School! The school is right outside the capital of Lilongwe. She was so excited
to go to school and meet new friends. Girls that go away to an all-girls school have a better
chance of staying focused and making it to University. Since Emma wants to be a nurse, she
will have to do well in secondary school and go to the University to pursue her nursing dreams.

When meeting the Headmaster of the school, she commented on how brilliant Emma was and
that she will do well at this new school. We spent some time looking around the school and talking
to the Headmaster, who to our surprise has known Emma since she was little. It was great to
know that Emma already had a connection with someone she could trust.

Good luck Emma, we hope you love your new school! Thanks for your support!
