Head girl: Emily Nangacovie

Being the head girl of Chairman Mao Zedong High School is a dream come true for me. One of the biggest lessons I have learnt so far is time management. Keeping up with my head girl duties and school has been a struggle, but I am learning to cope, as time goes by.

The way my fellow learners see me is very important because they voted me in power and it is a duty to serve, support and make sure their voices are heard. I have been told that I am a good head girl because I associate myself with my fellow learners, compared to the previous head girls. I try my best to be professional at what I do and I am aware that if I look bad, that also affects my team.
