Through his sponsorship, Daniel is afforded the opportunity to stay at the school hostel, which provides meals, electricity to study, and the space to fully focus on his education. He also gets to enjoy his community of friends in the hostel, chatting, joking, and watching Manchester United matches on the weekends. Daniel is also an ardent fan of hip-hop music, both local and American, with Jay-Z being his favorite rapper. When we asked him if he also raps, Daniel laughed and told us that, for now, he’s just focusing on being a student. “I can do anything once I have an education.”
