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!

Meet Jestina, who has been generously sponsored by Heather O’Brien. She is 5 years old and is going to school for the first time this year in the ABC grade. Jestina lives in Sopea, Liberia with her single mother who has 4 children and could not afford to send them to school. Her interests are playing with friends and she hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
