The second part of The Morningstar Foundation's "The Faces of Orkeeswa" series is here, and in this post we are featuring Elizabeth John, a Second Form student at Orkeeswa.
Elizabeth is one of five children, but is the first in her family to attend Secondary School. Both of her parents are farmers and sell maize and beans in the market to support their family.
Elizabeth is now a Form II student at Orkeeswa and thrives in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. At Orkeeswa, she appreciates the opportunities that come from a close, mentor relationship with her teachers. Elizabeth's focus and dedication make her one of the top students in her class.
After Secondary School, Elizabeth hopes to continue her studies in University to become a doctor. She has dreams of traveling the world and visiting different hospitals, in order to learn from others and share ideas. Elizabeth's goal is to provide quality healthcare to all members of her community.
