Wolson is a bright young man from the village of Galette Chambon who has a quiet, gentle nature. He lives with his parents and two sisters and two brothers. Neither of his parents have a steady source of income. His mother tries to cook things and sell them at the market, but that doesn’t always provide enough money to feel their whole family. His father has been sick a lot over the last year, so he has not been able to work much either. Wolson tries to help out by growing a garden and sending vegetables to market with his mother, but it still doesn’t create much income. In the summer and sometimes during the school year he also works as a share cropper on a large farm in the village. Wolson loves to study his lessons for school and his favorite subject is French. He wants to one day become a French teacher at the BGM High School.
