Student at Peas Kampinda Secondary School
My name is Natasha Mangwato, and I am fifteen years old, and I learn here at Peas Kampinda Secondary School. I stared school here in 2020 when I passed my grade 7 exams, now I am in grade 9. I live in Henry Kapata village, and I stay with my mother’s sister. My mother and my father are in Zolwezi, they do not work. I have two sister and a brother.
I like this school because it provides free service education, it provides to those who are unable to pay for school fees to go back to school. My favorite thing about this school is it encourages people, those who have lost hope of not going to school to continue to come to school.
I take part in some extracurricular activities, not so much in sports but I take part in debate. I also take part in the ICT computer course. We learn e-commerce, computer-based learnings, and other activities.
The impact on of the school on the community is huge, like I said it encourages people, those who are unable to pay for school to come back to school.
My plan for the future is when I finish school, I want to become a nurse and when I am done that, I want to get a job. I want to work on my own. I need to help my other sister who have not finished school. I am the second born, I might finish first and then I might help them with their education.
I would like to say to the people of Costa and Peas is we thank them for everything they have done for us. Our parents are unable to pay for our school fees but because of them we can teach her and continue our studies.
My dream for the future is to become an accountant. I want a nice house, and also to be a peace maker. I feel bad when I find people quarrelling about different things.
