Wanderson is a 17 year old from Galette Chambon who lives with his mother, father, five sisters and six brothers. His father is a farmer and his mother sells rice and beans that she cooks for people in the village. Wanderson loves to go to school and he loves to play soccer with his friends and work whenever he can. He often helps his father in the fields. Wanderson doesn’t want to be a farmer for the rest of his life though. He wants to go to school to either become a doctor or a plumber. He thinks it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan, so if med school doesn’t work out, he knows he can make a decent living as a plumber. If he does learn how to be a plumber, he says the first thing he is going to do is run a water pipe to his house so his mother and siblings don’t have to go so far to get water every day. Wanderson is thankful that he is being allowed to go to the BGM high school, but he is desperately wanting to find a sponsor so that he can also get his own books to study.
