meet jessica...

This is Jessica. She is a 6 year old who often goes under the radar because she doesn't talk much nor is she a fighter like her classmates, but you can be sure that there is always a smile on her face. Whenever we want to find Jessica, all we need to do is look past the pile of wrestlers in front of us, to find a sweet little girl sitting nicely against the wall and laughing. If you saw the conditions that this sweet child lives in, you would tear up. Dirty water from a lake where people also use the restroom, is what they use to clean the dishes in her house. Food is scarce, for her, as it is for the rest of the kids.

We have actually never met Jessica's parent(s) and are looking forward to connecting with them to further understand her context.
