Mickenson is a five year old from a village called Michel near Galette Chambon. He lives with his father, two sisters and two brothers. His father does not have any source of income. Sometimes he is able to find some odd jobs to work, but their family primarily depends on the generosity of others in order to survive. Director Salomon was very generous when he agreed to let Mickenson and his sister Merline go to his school without sponsors, however, Mickenson would really love to be able to get his own uniform and books and know that he has a sponsor who is praying for him and his family and making sure he can continue to go to school. He loves to play with is friends and he thinks his favorite subject in school is going to be mathematics. He says he hasn’t thought much about what he wants to be when he grows up, but he thinks he might want to be a teacher one day.
