Sophia is thirteen years old and she lives with her mother, two sisters, and one brother. She is the youngest in the family. Her mother sometimes makes food to sell to people on the street, but she doesn’t make much money doing that. All of Sophia’s siblings take turns going to school so that they can each learn to read and write and hopefully find good jobs one day. In the meantime, she enjoys working around the house and studying math and French. She hopes to one day become a police woman and drive a fast car.
