Student Profile : Sanduke
Today we want to introduce you to Africa ELI student, Sanduke, who attends school at Morobo Excel Academy. Sanduke is a bright and beautiful 18-year-old, and the daughter to two farmers. She first heard about Excel Academy on the radio, and she tells us that the teaching here is "very good." She now hopes to join Juba University after graduating so she can study Biology and become a doctor. Sanduke explains that in South Sudan, people lack doctors, and many children suffer from diseases like cholera and diarrhea. Sanduke dreams of treating the sick and teaching them about health. In fact, she wants to stay in her village once she becomes a doctor. "The people here, they don't know what health is," Sanduke says, and she intends to teach them.
