Meet Woodya. She is 16 years old and in grade 9. She lives with her mother and 3 siblings. Her father abandoned the family and provides no support, financially or otherwise. When asked why Woodya enjoys attending a Christian School, she replied “I don’t want to be someone who wanders around with nowhere to go. I want to have a purpose. God gives me hope and a good school.” She explains to us that she prays often and asks God to help her keep going and to have courage. She dreams of one day becoming a nurse and helping others.
