Monika lives with her parents, one brother and four sisters, in a stone house with a metal roof in Previle, southern Haiti. She is in grade seven and her favourite subject is Social Studies. She enjoys skipping rope with her friends. Monika would like to become a nurse someday. Her parents work as farmers, and are struggling to provide the basic needs of their family.
