Plamedie walks 45 minutes each way to get to school every day.
For her, the oldest in a family of five children, this trek is well worth it.
“Malaika has changed my life, which is now different from my brothers’ and sisters’. I can dream big and believe that my dream will be transformed into reality,” the grade 12 student says.
She says her favorite classes are mathematics and computer science, and she loves tennis and ping pong.
“I’d like to develop my tennis skills to become a famous tennis star following other famous stars in the world.” We love these aspirations, and we know Plamedie will go far!
