Update on Monica
Monica is working super hard in school and wants to see her dreams come true! She understands that doing well in school will help her to achieve her dreams. Monica wants to attend college in the future and is working to make the grades to get into college.
College in Malawi is very competitive, and to get your first choice of colleges, your grades need to be very good.
Monica has the ability to do very well this year and has been taking advantage of all the opportunities to succeed. Because of your help, she feels she has the support to make it to college.
Attending an all-girls secondary school in the capital city has given her an advantage that most do not get. Monica will be taking the MSCE exams this year.
Way to go, Monica!
