My name is Fárida, I'm 18 years old, and I live with my parents, my paternal grandparents and my brothers. Last year I took 12th grade, in arts and mathematics, but unfortunately I was unable to enter the university Faculty. But I hope I will get in next year to study sociology or anthropology.
In my free time I like to read, sleep, go for walks, chat, watch television and many other things. I am a presenter of Radio Mozambique's children's programme "Hora do Recreio" (Time to Play).
When I was a child I always enjoyed listening to the Radio Mozambique children?s programmes. I used to take part in competitions until one day I was invited to get to know all those who made the programme. They also invited me to read a story "A Vaca Malhada" ("The Spotted Cow"). I liked it and from that time on, I frequented the radio. I recall that at the time I was only 9 years old.
I have done reports for the children's programme, and I still do. For example, special programmes broadcast live from the schools. I liked the programme we made for the First Lady of Germany last year, when she came to visit the children?s programme.
