Djenika is a hard working fourteen year old from the village of Galette Chambon. She lives with her mother, two sisters, and two brothers. Her mother does not have a source of income at all. Her older brother works as a moto tap tap driver to try to make a little money to feed the family, but it isn’t enough to pay for her school. She is so smart that the principal has let her start school with hopes of finding a sponsor soon. If she doesn’t find out by Christmas, she will have to quit. Djenika loves to walk around the village, cook, and study. Her favorite subject is Spanish. When she grows up, she wants to become a kindergarten teacher because she loves teaching children.
