Sponsor Update Naan

posted in: Private Pages 0

Naan came to us from our partner school when she graduated from 6th grade. Coming to Warm Heart was a really big deal for her, her family and her whole village. She is the first person in the entire village to go past 6th grade in school!

She is going to go far past 6th grade. This girl is destined for really great things. Now in 10th grade, Naan is an absolutely natural leader. Apart from being a very good student, she is an exceptional athlete and captain of the volleyball team.

When you watch her play, you see the poise and self-confidence of a born athlete, but you also see the ease with which she leads, speaking quietly to her players, handing out pats, supporting nods and high-fives.

She will never lose these leadership skills and no matter what career she finally chooses; they will serve her well. Naan is the sort of child Warm Heart was built for – huge talent needing just the opportunity to shine.

Age: 19

Grade: 12th
