On this fantastic Fourth, we received emails from the three girls we sponsor in AfricAid‘s Kisa Project — all thanks to GIRLS WHO ROCK and those of you who donated, attended and performed for the cause! You already know of Elizabeth David, and this week, you will also meet Happiness and Grace, her schoolmates! The founder of AfricAid, Ashley Shuyler, who attended our concert thanks to a flight JetBlue donated, is now in Tanzania with the girls, and she told them all about GIRLS WHO ROCK. Check out Elizabeth’s reaction below, learn a little bit more about her family, and leave her some comments and questions!
Here’s wishing all girls the freedom to learn and pursue their dreams!
It’s so good to hear from you and actually I feel so excited every time I read your messages. I was told about the concert and that Kat DeLuna performed too. I like her a lot, she’s a great singer. I really have to say that I was surprised to see your photo, you girls are so beautiful,you really rock…
I love Disney movies and cartoons a lot so I’m so happy to hear that you like it too. I watched Cinderella, Snow White, Shrek and many others. In short, I love fairy tales. And I love Indian movies a lot.
I havent figured it out yet on what business I will start. I want to plan everything carefully. Sorry for the late reply. I had exams and the electricity was cut off.
Back to my family,we are three girls. My first sis is a high school teacher. She’s 26, her name is Lydia. The sec born is Happiness, but we just call her Happy. She’s 24 and works in an anti-corruption bureau.We are so close and
love each other so much. My mom is a teacher and my dad is a retired police officer, so I guess that’s all about my family.
Tell Chelsea and Cheryl that I said hi and they have beautiful names. Thank all the girls for their support.

P.S. Did you notice Elizabeth mentioned she is a Kat DeLuna fan?! We had no idea these girls were familiar with her music! Neither did Ashley. She emailed us from the computer lab to say, “When they looked at the pictures you have posted on your Kisa profile, they all went crazy because they know of Kat DeLuna and love her music. They could not BELIEVE that Kat had sung in their honor and for their scholarships, and they were literally shrieking with excitement.” Kat, you go global!! All the way to Tanzania!!
