What do you want to be when you grow up? ⠀
I found myself asking this question to girls more than the boys. One thing noticeable is that, today's primary school girls are more interested in pursuing male dominated careers. While young boys ideal jobs have stayed relatively constant throughout this trip, young girls career dreams have grown loftier and more ambitious. ⠀
Here's quiet moment at Sunni Madrasa school in Zanzibar, where I met Zainab. She was gazing out the window during her short break. I immediately had to take a picture before she noticed I was there. Zainab is 16 years old and wants to pursue a career in Business.
