Andsen Phiri

Age: 9 

Grade: 3 

Ambition: To be a Lawyer

Andsen surprised us when we first met him with his unique mix of focus and love for mischief. He is playful but, we soon found out, knows when to get serious. Like a lot of the boys at Chitempha Basic School, Andsen spends a good deal of his time out on the football field, but when in the classroom, he is always present. When we asked him what he wanted to be, he didn’t skip a beat in saying he wanted to be a lawyer. 

We hope that Andsen keeps up his balance between work and play. We’ll be watching from the sidelines!
