Jolanda¬†is a smart seventeen year old from the village of Galette Chambon who has big dreams of becoming a nurse one day. Her parents died when she was very young, so she has been raised by her grandmother. Her grandmother is not in good health, so she spends a lot of time taking care of her. That’s how she decided to become a nurse because she gets a great deal of satisfaction from helping her grandmother when she is sick. She wishes she knew many more things about healthcare because if she did, she could take better care of her grandmother.¬†Jolanda says it would be a dream come true to be able to be qualified to help other people who are sick too. Her favorite things to do when she’s not in school are play soccer, study her lessons, and go on field trips with her classmates. Her favorite subject is Biology. She has been so thankful to be able to go to the BGM high school, but she knows she won’t be able to go much longer without a sponsor. She prays all the time that one day she will have a sponsor to help her realize her dreams.
