Project Description

Louisena* (1892)

Age: 16

Grade: 9th

Three years ago, Louisena’s mother passed away, leaving her and her brother in the care of their uncle. Though they had always lived together in the same tin-roof home, Louisena became responsible for completing all of the household chores, including cleaning, cooking, washing dishes, and going to the market, after her mother’s death.

Her advocate, Mackenson, describes her as intelligent and hopeful. Louisena’s favorite colors are pink and blue, and she enjoys spending time with her friends. In the future, she wants to become both a doctor and a beautician, because she wants to care for those who are sick and she also likes beauty.
