Home Country: Mali
Learn More About Iba

 Meet Iba Soumare! Iba is in the 8th grade and this is his first year at The Nest Academy! Iba loves playing soccer (his favorite position is attacking mid), drawing, and playing video games (especially Fortnite)! At his old school, Iba says there was too much fighting, other students were disrespectful to the teachers to the point that they would quit, and he felt like he wasn’t learning enough. Iba loves the different learning style that he is experiencing here at the Academy! He says there is more freedom and independent work which helps him learn better. And, to Iba, the best part is that nobody gets bullied and they get to learn about Christ! Iba’s favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 1:7, “But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.’”

Mathiu Rochom

Mathiu Rochom

8th Grade

Home Country: Vietnam

Learn More About Mathiu

Meet Mathiú Rochom! This is Mathiú’s second year at The Nest Academy and he is in eighth grade this year. At his old school, Mathú struggled to keep up because of large class sizes; he was often distracted by other students who were off task and, when he needed more help in certain areas, teachers were unable to give that to him. Since coming to the Academy, Mathiú enjoys school so much more because the small class sizes allows him to get more attention from his teachers. Mathiú’s favorite subject is math, but he also loves learning about history, especially World War II and the Vietnam War! And, outside of school, Mathiú loves playing soccer! Mathiú seems pretty quiet at first, but, once you get to know him, he is full of energy and entertainment!

Meet Mema! This is Mema’s second year at The Nest Academy and she has captured the hearts of everyone here! At her previous school, Mema struggled because she couldn’t speak English very well and didn’t know how to read. She was often bullied because of those things and because of her appearance. Since coming to the Academy, Mema has made many new friends and she is making great progress in learning to read! Her love of learning and constant desire to do better is contagious! Mema hopes that one day she will even be able to be a doctor! In her free time, Mema loves to hang out with her friends and watch movies; her favorite movie is Pete’s Dragon! Mema’s favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  She says it reminds her to never be afraid when she is lonely or sad because God is with her!

When asked to describe himself in one word, Tinh chose “playful” and that is certainly an accurate description of his personality! Tinh is full of energy and always has a smile on his face!
