Monika is a responsible, self-directed ninth grade student. Though small in stature, Monika has taken upon herself the big job of teaching weekend classes in values, songs, and stories to the younger Pathway students. Also gifted in music, Monika learned to play the piano so she can accompany group singing. A serious young lady, Monika’s favorite subject is English and she would like to continue her studies and possibly become a teacher. Her older sister graduated from Pathway and is now in the 11th grade and her brother, Naresh, is currently a 6th grade student at Pathway.
