Hi, my name is Shirlaine! I have big dreams and plans for my life! I like to take good care of my teeth and hair. I like to study and am a good student! I live with my mom, dad, and my two sisters. We live in a governmental housing project for low income families. My mom and dad are currently unemployed, but my father helps take care of people’s gardens, when he is able to find the work. He is truly happy for me when he sees how well I am doing in school, because he, himself, never had the opportunity to go.
