Emily is Bicly’s little sister. It is hard to believe she is now old enough to go to school! Emily has four sisters and three brothers. Only two of her brothers go to school and only one of her sisters goes to school. The others cannot afford to go right now. They are hoping to one day all have sponsors so that they can all go to school. Their mother owns a small store in her house, but that is their only income. Emily was named after one of the teenagers that came to Hope Center one year and she has grown up with teams coming to see her house in the village all the time. She went through a stage when she was scared of the Americans that came through, but she came out of that stage, she found that she enjoyed singing praise songs for the teams. Emily is excited about going to school now. She does not know what she wants to be when she grows up. She just wants to go to school!!
