Description

Sadeesha and Sahani, aged 14 and 13, are grade 7 students in Sri Lanka. The girls are good in their studies and love playing sports.

“Sahani and I excel in our studies including sports. We’ve been classmates and best of friends. We are also part of the aerobic gymnastics team. We always encourage each other,” says Sadeesha. 

Apart from being classmates and good friends, Sadeesha and Sahani are also on their school Aerobic Gymnastics Team.

“We practice twice a week, more if a competition is nearing,” says Sadeesha. “We start practice at 6 a.m before school starts. “We don’t have many facilities, so to practice some formations, we borrow the mattress used for high jump when the other athletes are not using it,” she explains.
