Nephtania is a spunky little six year old from the village of Galette Chambon. She lives with her mother, father, three sisters, and one brother. Her parents do not have a constant source of income. Sometimes they get to work in the garden as share croppers but it is hard for them to make ends meet. Her father also raises goats and that is how he paid for her school this year. He sold a goat! But Nephtania knows that next year it will be harder because her little sister will be ready to start school, and they might not be able to afford all of their tuition. When Nephtania is not in school, she loves to cook. Her favorite subject in school is reading, and when she grows up, she wants to become an English teacher!
