2 Isatou What’s going well? I have lots of family and friends that I trust and respect. We look after each other. If any of us have a got a problem, we talk about it. I love my primary school. I’m good at Maths, English and Science. When I’m older I want to be a doctor. My hassles I have to walk 2 miles every day to get clean water for my family. Once before I go to school and again when I come home. I get tired. I can’t go to secondary school because my family can’t afford the fees. We are cocoa farmers and get paid very little for all our hard work.
