Husna lives with her auntie – her parents are extremely poor. Her auntie took Husna away from her parents, and made sure that she attended primary school. She was placed sixth in her examinations at Lesiraa Primary School in early 2014, and performed particularly well in the national examinations in November 2014. She would like to be a nurse one day.
Husna started her secondary education at Kipok Girls’ Secondary Boarding School in January 2015. In her first school examinations in November 2015 she gained a Distinction (the highest level). She is being sponsored by Julie and Amy Everson. Julie is a member of the Stockton Soroptimist group, and daughter Amy is a primary school teacher in Leeds.
