Rebecca¬†is a nineteen year old who is in the 8th grade because she has not been able to consistently go to school over the years. Her mother died six years ago when she was 13, and at the time, she had to drop out of school to take care of her siblings. Their father had abandoned the family two years before that and they had not seen him since. She and her three brothers and two sisters now live with their cousin in Galette Chambon. She desperately wants to finish school, and the principal at BGM High School has agreed to let her attend and try to get a sponsor to help her pay for it. She must start paying her tuition in January or she will have to drop out again. Rebecca’s favorite things to do are hang out with friends, study, and help with household chores. Her favorite subject is geography, and when she grows up, she would like to be a nurse.
