Monia is a very happy and loving 15 year old girl from Galette Chambon who lives with her mother, two sisters, and two brothers. Her father does not live with them and she has not seen him in a very long time. That makes her sad for her mother, but she tries to make her mother happy by helping her with her brothers and sisters. Monia loves to cook and sew. She has dreams of being able to have a sewing machine and make clothes for her family. The only reason Moriah was able to go to school this year is because her mother is a cook there and she used some of her money to pay for Monia’s school. She was able to pay tuition, but she could not afford to have a uniform made. Monia wanted to make her own uniform, but she couldn’t buy the fabric. She really wants to have a sponsor so that she can be like the other kids and have a uniform as well as take the burden off her mother to try to afford to pay for her school. Monia’s favorite subjects are grammar and reading. She wants to be a professor one day as well as own her own sewing business so she can help make uniforms for students who can’t afford them.
