My favorite sound is the clucking of chicken, in the morning.

22-year-old Khataza Banda has four siblings and goes to the SOS Secondary School in Lilongwe. Her favorite subject is English. After finishing school, she would like to be a designer. Khataza loves spending hours playing cards with her friends. She can only communicate using sign language at the moment due to her severe hearing loss. She was provided with hearing aids in October 2014 and has been making noticeable strides in her development ever since.
