Inu Pakhrin shares her Star Writer Program Experience
Inu Pakhrin, a student of Taltuleshwory school shares her experience of the Star Writer Program
Inu Pakhrin, aged 12 studies in class five in Shree Taltuleshwory School, Thangpalkot VDC, Sindupalchok. There are five members in her family including her mother, father, and two sisters, one elder to her and the other younger than her. Her parents work as farmers in order to earn their livelihood. Inu shared her experience of participating in the Star Writer Program organized by COMMITTED. She expressed that she really enjoyed reading ‘Treasure Island’ the story book that their class had been assigned and that her favorite character in the book was Jim Hopkins. She shared that she found the program quite interesting as this was the first time that she had participated in such a program. She was happy that she got the opportunity to read a story book written in English guided by her English teacher as she used to read only Nepali story books earlier on. She said that from now on she would visit her school library more often and try to read other story books written in English.
Since before this she had not read an English story book completely, Inu shared that she found a lot of the words and the sentence structure in the book quite difficult to understand. She was advised to get a dictionary to help her find the meanings of the difficult words and now she has been continually using it. She spends her spare time in learning the meanings of different words and its pronunciation. She feels that students get encouraged to develop the habit of reading through such a program and is glad to have been a part of it. The book report written by Inu after finishing reading Treasure Island was also chosen as one of the best book reports in the class by her teacher. Kudos to this star reader!
