Vester lives with her mom, dad, two older brothers, and three younger sisters in Kasungu village when she is not at school. Her parents have a small farm but no jobs or business. Vester enjoys playing netball as a defender.

Vester is a good student. She excels in math, biology, and Chichewa language studies. Transportation is a challenge for her due to a lack of money. Vester is the dorm prefect for the school. Her future goal is to attend college and become a brain surgeon. She has asked Good Soil Partners to help her pay for school fees.

Update on Vester

 

 

Vester continues to set very high standards for herself. She works so hard for the grades that she gets and really cares about her school work, education, and grades. She will be taking the MSCE exams this year and she really hopes to do well on them, so wish her luck with those!

Life for her is going very well. After being sick for a while, she is feeling healthy and has less stress. Because of your help, Good Soil Partners is paying her school fees and giving her school supplies. This helps her focus on her school work without fear and stress – something that is helping her tremendously.

Vester was also excited to tell us that she baked her first cake in school and she was proud to say that it was very tasty!

Keep working hard, Vester!
