Joudeline is an eight year old little girl from the village of Galette Chambon. She lives with her brother and parents who work as farmers who sell their produce in the open market. Joudeline has never been able to go to school because her parents cannot afford to pay for school for both of their children. Joudeline’s brother is older, so he got to start school first, but he has tried to teach his sister many of the things he has learned, so she is excited about getting the chance to show him what she has learned! Joudeline loves mathematics, so she is pretty sure it will be her favorite subject in school. As a matter of fact, she is hoping to one day become a math teacher in school one day!
