Eight-year-old Jestina appeared quiet and shy at the beginning of our update interview. She later became comfortable and very responsive. Our interviews give students an early opportunity to experience child-adult interactions, preparing them at an early age to be comfortable in professional interactions and settings. Jestina is promoted to kindergarten-2 class! Sponsored by: Joyce Jorgensen
Thanks to the generous donation from Heather O’Brien, Jestina has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She received an incomplete for the 2020/2021 school year. Due to COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedule. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021/2022 school year. Jestina was kept in her current grade level of K-1 grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her mother and still wants to be a nurse when she grows up.
