THINGS SHE LIKES TO DO
Making Paper Flowers & Football
Fried Cauliflower & Pork
I am 13 years old, am in grade 4 and love the colour pink. My favourite foods are fried cauliflower with pork, avocado and apple. For fun I like to make paper flowers, draw pictures, put on makeup and play football. I worked as a cleaner and served coffee at a café which was a front for providing sexual services. I was sold for sex whilst working there before the police and government officials found me and intervened.
I have a big family; I am the second eldest of 7 children! My mother and father are divorced, so I lived with my grandmother for a little while before my mother remarried and I moved back in with her. I have 3 siblings from my mother’s first marriage, and 3 more half-siblings from my mother’s second marriage. Together my mother and step-father earn an income through commissions from land sales. My sister was also working with me at the café and we were brought to the SHE Rescue Home together.
Hopefully in the future, when it becomes safe, I will be reintegrated with my family. While I am at the SHE Rescue Home, I will be provided with counselling and support during my court case. When I grow up, I want to work in the front office of a beauty salon.
