About

Neema came to Orkeeswa School with an appetite for knowledge and success that was born from a difficult upbringing. Neema's father passed away when she was young, and her mother has experienced mental health issues that made it difficult for her to support her children. Her grandmother ensured Neema and her siblings got the care they needed, but she was worried she would not be able to send them to school. Despite earlier hardships, Neema has become a lively and cheerful student with a passion for drama and singing, and she will surely be a star in her community!

Hello Neema,

My name is Lydia and I am so glad to have gotten connected to you. I wanted to reach out and learn more about you. I understand that you love drama and singing which I find so cool! I was wondering if you had any other interests besides drama and singing?

I also wanted to send my best wishes to you during the pandemic. I hope you have been safe, and I actually wanted to ask you how things have been with the pandemic where you are?

I hope to hear from you soon.

Lydia
