Anouska Newhouse (nicknamed Nou-Nou) arrived in Tanzania to begin an internship to assist teachers in the classroom and mentor students in reading. Nou-Nou hails from Essex in a village called Kelvedon, about 50 miles from London. She recently graduated from high school receiving A level grades in Religious Studies, English Literature and History. In addition, she was a sports scholar and captained a number of Kent County hockey teams. She also headed a mental health society at school and ran a peer listening program for younger students. She plans to pursue her university studies after a gap year, which includes volunteering in Tanzania. We look forward to her presence at our school and are fortunate to have her with us.
Nou is staying with Nancy, a friend of the school, whose house is a short walk to our school. Nancy writes of Nou, 2 days after her arrival:
“Oh my goodness Nou is such a beautiful soul.. I love her😍😍 She is so polite and happy and determined.. And so smart.. We talk all the time.. She likes to learn and observe… I will love for her to excel in life especially in her career.. I tell her am proud of her and how far she has come in at such a young age… Glad she is here!”
