Markline is a timid eleven year old from the village of Placement near Galette Chambon. She lives with her mother, two brothers, and one sister. Her father died last year and since that time, her mother has struggled to provide for the family. Markline has never needed a sponsor before and she was very shy about being put on the website to find a sponsor. However, if she is going to continue with school, she must have a sponsor. She loves to study and go to church and her favorite subject is French. When she grows up, she wants to become a teacher or a nurse.
