Eighteen-year-old Cecelia is excited about another opportunity to pursue her dream of graduating from high school.  She will be the first high school graduate in her family.  She still lives with her mother and is currently in grade 5. A determined Cecelia has counted ahead and estimates she will graduate when she is 25 years old.  She is hopeful of a double promotion this school year to propel her closer to her age-appropriate grade level.  Thanks to GPA’s sponsor network for giving Cecelia another opportunity to pursue her educational goals and her dream of becoming a nurse.  Sponsored by: Scott Heise

Cecelia has been generously re-sponsored by a Kristen Joiner and Andrew Johnson. She is 15 years old and was promoted to the 2nd grade this year.  She lives in Boapea, Liberia with mother. Cecelia is really proud she’s getting better grades than her brothers. Before Girl Power Africa, only her brothers were able to attend school because her dad says “school is for men”. She is determined to succeed. Her interests are learning and she hopes to be a doctor when she grows up.

Meet Cecelia, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous donor (KJ). She is 14 years old and in the 1st grade this year.  She lives in Boapea, Liberia with her mother. Cecelia told Girl Power “My father have plenty children and we girls don’t always go to school because they say school for the men. But I want to learn”.  Her interests are learning, helping around the house and yard, and she hopes to be a doctor when she grows up.
