Born in one of the remotest villages in the Southern part of Malawi, Asiyatu is one of the few girls from her village who values education. Many of her agemates have dropped out of school in search for early marriages. Opportunity to benefit from the secondary school scholarships offered through H.E.L.P. Malawi has been an encouragement to her education.
She is now in her first year of secondary school after completing eight years of primary school.
She would like to become a Nurse when she finishes school. Her favorite subject is English. She enjoys playing netball during her free time.
