My name is Nasianda Letoo. I come from Simanjiro, Manyara Region, Tanzania. My mother is the fifth  of the eight wives of my father. I have a brother and five sisters. My father was uninterested in my education while my mother was the one supported me from the very beginning. She really worked hard to make sure that I continue with my education even if I have some physical disabilities. When I was small, I accidentally crawled into a burning goat’s dung that badly burnt my legs, arms and fingers.  
 

In 2010, I was able to successfully finish standard seven and even was selected to join Form 1 in a government school. I was not able to go since my family could not afford the school fees. My mother really want me to conitnue with my education so when she heard of Emusoi Centre from our neighbor, she travelled to Arusha to seek assistance for my education. Both my sister and I are now in Emusoi centre. She is in Form 3 while I am in Form 1 at Mwedo Girls Secondary School. 

As for my parents, they are no longer together. My father hated my mother because she supports the idea of educating girls. She lives on her own now and would travel to different places to ask help from different people to support our education. She is getting some support from my uncles. She now has goats, cows and sheep that were given by our relatives.
