Hi, my name is Larissa, but my friends and family call me Lala! I am a quiet and shy kid, with a beautiful smile that truly lights up the room. I like to laugh and joke around. I live with my mom, and my 4 sisters and 2 brothers. We live in a governmental apartment project for low income families. My brothers and sisters have had to take care of me and my mother as she battles with alcoholism. My older brothers and sisters do what they can to help support and take care of one another. My father was tragically burnt to death, as he was locked in a makeshift shelter where he stayed while working the fields.
