WELCOMED TO SHE
THINGS SHE LIKES TO DO
Reading books & Volleyball
I am 15 years old, am in grade 7 and love the colour pink. My favourite food is fried ginger and I like singing; reading books, playing volleyball and miming. I was working in a coffee shop, which was a front for providing sexual services and I gave massages there before the police and government officials found me and intervened.
I have a big family; I am the 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 a beauty salon or be a police officer.
