He is proud of his Tanzanian heritage and loves making delicious traditional Tanzanian dishes with his dad, like mandazi – his favourite, yum!

Hisani is also a talented musician – he’s been playing the ngoma drums since he was a baby! After showing us all the instruments that he owns and is learning to play, Hisani receives a special message from a role model who encourages him march to the beat of his own drum.
