I am Nowilia Sabajo and currently I am a retired teacher. I use to teach at English at a middle school. I really enjoyed my job teaching children about the language and about pursuing their dreams.
Nowilia is really an Amerindian in body and soul. Like these people she likes fishing, swimming, walking through the forest, working in the garden and sleeping.
Enjoying all that mother nature offers is never too much.
She has always admired the Amerindian culture for its beautiful colors: the beads, the clothing and the hammocks. Their pottery and music is also adorable.
Working in the garden is what she enjoys most, because then she has food. She plants vegetables and fruits and plants for pots are her favorites, because these need less care. Whatever vegetables she finds they are all welcome, because the fertilizer that is used is as much as possible from nature. This makes the vegetables extra tasty.
Some photos will prove this
Except for the fact that she earns her daily bread by teaching English at a high school, she also gives private teaching to foreigners who speak English, but want to learn Dutch and Sranan-Tongo, the creole language in Suriname.
She has been busy with this for ten years now and has developed her own course, similar to the newly published book: a course on paper and a CD to listen to.
Another activity is assisting the priest in church or replacing him in times of his absence, and holding masses at home when people celebrate special birthdays or in times of deaths. For the elderly and sick people the body of the Lord is brought to enlighten their lives.
