Anna Loinyeye

Both her parents have died – her father actually drowned in a flood, and her mother died from the effects of high blood pressure. She has four brothers and six sisters. Two of her brothers and one of her sisters all have mental health problems. She is living with one of her brothers, who was not able to go to school and survives by ‘working the land’. If she goes to secondary school, she will be the first to do so in her family. She was placed fourth in her examinations at Meserani Chini Primary School in 2017. Her favourite subjects are Geography, Mathematics and English, and she would like to be an accountant one day.

Anna started her secondary education at Kipok Girls’ Secondary Boarding School in January 2018. She is being sponsored by Archibald Primary School, Middlesbrough.
