Our fourteenth team member introduces herself
My name is Asteria Sylivester Manyasi. I am 53 years old, and widow. I have six children, four girls and two boys. I have been working with Upendo Daima since 2009 as a profesional cook.
It is my job and my responsibility to cook good and healthy food for the children and the staff. I make sure that the food is ready on time and that the kitchen is safe and clean.
During my presence and during cooking I have a lot of contact with the children and I give them advice on all kind of little problems they encounter. I also use my time to advise the children how to get a better relationship with others. In addition to my work at Upendo Daima, I am busy with my family and the neighborhood in which I live. Because I am the district representative there are people coming to me with their problems which I try to solve. If there is some time left, I like to do handcraft like batik. I also like to braid hair. In addition, I am still singing in a choir and I like reading the Bible very much.
This is in short the story of my daily life.
