Gugu is a nine year old girl who studies in EwB’s after-school program.
She got involved with EwB because she was struggling in Mathematics and could not read or write properly in her second language, English.
Since participating in EwB, Gugu has experienced the joy of seeing herself succeed. “I can add and subtract big numbers without use of a calculator, I can use my brain, and this is wonderful” (translated from the isiXhosa), said Gugu.
Gugu already has a clear sense of vision for her future. She wants to study to become a psychologist to help people feel good about themselves.
