Meet Sophia Paulo, a 17 year old at the Orkeeswa Secondary School in AfricAid’s Kisa Project. Sophia is from the village of Lashaine. She is one of the first girls from her village to get both a primary and secondary education.
She says that Kisa has helped her with public speaking and given her the opportunity to learn more about women. Sophia wants to become a politician so that she can help her village and work for women’s empowerment!
Sophia was sponsored in 2011 by the Tie-dye Cupcake Bake-off and is currently being sponsored in 2012 by the Voice Your Verse Campaign and Molly Page.
Check out Sophia’s Digital Story below to learn more about her in her own words!
