Spirited. Smart. Sweet.
Celestine is the kind of girl that carries herself with pride and intelligence. She is so caring of others and never thinks of herself. She is going to do big things one day!
Before moving into the orphanage Celestine lived in the slums with her younger sister Bendetta. Both of her parents passed away so she was both mother and father to her siblings. She would skip school to earn money to buy food so they could eat for the day. The children stayed with an uncle who was verbally and physically abusive to Celestine. Her life was full of fear and hard labor instead of being a normal fifteen year old girl. Now Celestine is going to school and has dreams of becoming a teacher. She is happy and loves spending time with her friends. She is able to live a normal life and work on making her dreams come true!
