Joan Nakaketo
Age: 13

Grade: Primary 5

Family: Adopted

Goals: Become a nurse

Joan Nakaketo started living with an adopted family at a young age, after the divorce of her parents. Joan still feels sad about her parents being gone, and worries that they don’t like her because she hasn’t seen them since childhood. However, she is also grateful for the love and support that she has received from Cosma Foundation.

Joan is a shy and quiet child who likes mathematics, science and singing. She enjoys playing netball with her best friend Ritah. When Joan grows up, she’d like to become a nurse so she can provide health services to the community. She hates watching young children die due to lack of treatment, and hopes to address this through her nursing skills.
