My mom passed away when I was a baby.  I am the youngest of six children.  My father was unemployed and an alcoholic.  After my mom died, he became very abusive towards those of us who were still at home.  My oldest brother moved us to his house for safety reasons but he did not have an income to provide for me consistently.  I was still so young.  When I was 4 years old I moved into Mahiga Children’s Home where I received food, a safe place to sleep and people who loved me. I am now attending a College of Technology. I enjoy playing volleyball and netball.
