Frantzdy Onias is a 17 year old boy who lives in Galette Chambon with his parents, three brothers and five sisters. His parents are farmers and they grow corn and millet on a small farm where they also raise goats and chickens. Frantzdy is so excited about the possibility of going to BGM school in the 7th grade this year because if he gets a sponsor, he knows he will be able to continue on and finish. It has taken him thirteen years to finish seven grades because he doesn’t get to go to school unless his father has a good crop or if some of his siblings sit out of school. He is the oldest, so he usually has to be the one to sit out. He has not decided yet what he wants to do when he finishes school, but he is thinking about helping his father with the farm. He wants his siblings to be able to go to school too, so if he finds some work he can help with that. He just wants to finish school because no one in his family has ever finished school. Graduating from high school would be a huge accomplishment that would make him very proud.
