WELCOMED TO SHE
THINGS SHE LIKES TO DO
Listening to music
Beauty Salon Owner
When I came to the SHE Rescue Home, I was 14 years old and only in grade 1. My mother's cousin trafficked me, forcing me to have sex and didn’t give any of the money to me or my family. My favourite colour is pink and my favourite food is green vegetables. My favourite activity is listening to music and when I grow up I want to run a Beauty Salon.
My father works in construction and my mother doesn’t have a job. She was sick a long time ago and never recovered to her full strength. I have two siblings, an older brother and a younger sister. My older brother is mentally impaired so can’t help provide much for the family. This means that there is a lot of pressure on just my father to support our family.
While I am at the SHE Rescue Home I will be provided with counselling and return to school. Having an education is important for my future, especially because I dropped out so early. I want to work at a beauty salon in the future, my social worker will help me find the right training program for me.
