Lolngojine julia




Julia was born in 2003 and is the youngest of four children. Her father passed away when she was very young, while Julia was sick with tuberculosis. Her mother never went to school but since she lives in the small town of Sereolipi, she has learned some Swahili and is able to operate a small butchery. Through the butchery, Julia’s mom is able to support her family. When Julia was young, after her father passed away, her mother realized she had no one to depend on as they continued to face many challenges. She decided to send Julia to school, in hopes that Julia becoming educated would be the one that could rescue their family from poverty.

Julia joined Omar preschool in 2011 and then joined Sere Olipi Primary School the following year. With the encouragement of an older cousin, Julia worked tirelessly to emerge as one of the top girls in her class. Her favorite class is Kiswahili! After high school, Julia hopes to go to school to become a nurse, like her cousin. In addition to being a strong student, Julia enjoys singing in the school choir and in the church choir. She is very friendly with most of her classmates and was chosen as class prefect! At home, Julia helps with fetching water, firewood, washing clothes and cooking.
