Hawa Musa

Dreams of running her own hair salon

‘I love to be in school and study Kiswahili and Geography. I made a great friend here, Sienyi Eliawonyi, who helps me to study. I work hard, like my inspiration Tanzanian President John Magufuli. I hope to become a hair dresser and open up my own salon.’

What a joy it is to meet Hawa Musa Mshana. She came from Uru Rau village to learn from ‘good teachers’. She’s 18, loves to read, learn to farm, and her favorite meal is chicken and chips.
