Mickerline is a fun-loving seventeen year old who lives with her mother, two sisters, and two brothers in the village of Galette Chambon. She enjoys helping her mother around the house and helping her prepare for market whenever she can. She understands that it is really hard being a single mom and taking care of five children, so she tries to help her mother as much as she can. Mickerline loves to study and her favorite subject is French. When she grows up she wants to become a nurse because there are many sick people in Haiti, and nurses are needed to take care of them.
