Hi, my name is Vitória! I live with my mom, and my 4 sisters and 2 brothers. We live in a governmental apartment project for low income families. Me and my siblings have had to help raise one other, and take care of our mom who battles with alcoholism. My older brothers and sisters do what they can to help support and take care of me and my younger sisters. My father was tragically burnt to death, as he was locked in the makeshift shelter where he would stay while he was working the fields there. In spite of my difficult childhood, I am a bright light, and a source of energy and joy for those around me!
