Watch: Grade 4 girl has massive dreams and is determined to succeed

big dreams

Roxanne Salon has big dreams and she wants the world to know about it. Her teacher told the class they would be doing exams and her reaction is the best.


Roxanne Salon has a few wise words for her classmates. Her teacher told the class they would be writing exams and most of the class got rather put out by the idea. All except for one sweet dreamer!

Roxanne immediatly told the class that while they might not want to, she has bigger dreams and wants to do her exams.

Growing up on the farmlands in Porterville, she has seen her mother work hard for very little. She has seen what a lack of education has done to her family and is point blank refusing to head down the same path. She has seen her mother exhausted by a life of hard work.

She told her mother that she does not want to work the land. She wants to work in an office and go to university.

Roxanne’s drive to better her life is truly inspirational. It takes one brave little girl to stand up to the class and demand an education, to demand respect for the teacher.

The video has already been viewed over 180K times in less than 24-hours.

We know that Roxanne has a bright future ahead of her, just her sheer determination is enough proof of that. You can watch her inspirational speech below.
