Jessica’s favorite food meal is nshima with okra and beans and her favorite color is blue. Her favorite subjects are Chi Nyanja and English. She would like to be a teacher when she grows up. Jessica wants to teach because she wants to give back to the community through teaching kids whose parents cannot afford to send them to school.
