Leila Suleiman Hassan

My name is Leila Suleiman Hassan. I was born in 2001 at Mnazimmoja Hospital, and I am a child of a peasant family living at Jambiani village. I grew up and studied at Jambiani from Nursery level to Ordinary level.

I started my nursery education at Kikadini nursery school for two (2) years from 2007 to 2008. After the nursery school I joined at Kikadini government school for primary education. I studied there for seven (7) years from standard 1 to standard 7 in the years 2009 to 2015. In 2015 I did National Primary examination; I qualified well and was selected to join Jambiani Secondary School for ordinary level studies.

My secondary education took four (4) years from Form one (F 1) to Form four (F 4) from 2016 to 2019. At the end of 2019 I did the National Certificate of Secondary Education of Tanzania. I qualified and awarded the certificate after achieving grade C in Kiswahili and grade D in Kiislamu, Civics, Biology and English. I didn’t receive enough points to join to the advanced level (F5, F6), but this did not stop me to look forward for more education.

I cannot give up pursuing further education. I applied successfully at Elimu Mbadala Technology for an Information Technology (IT) course where I was awarded a certificate after three months in October 2020. In April 2021 I was offered the chance of continuing my IT-studies IT. I am studying in order to make me understand more and how I can help other people in life in this century of Science and Technology. My wish is to continue with the studies at State University of Zanzibar (SUZA). I would love to study hard and to succeeded because I have already great experience. You will find a friendly, reliable and hardworking student. Many thanks to my sponsors.
