Sweet. Quiet. Caring. Kind.
Your sweetness is so sincere and unmatched by anyone else.
At 13 you are one of the kindest and caring people I know. I love watching you with your friends. Watching you with the younger children. Watching the way you are always looking out for others.
Isabella was born and raised in the Kipsongo slum. She was raised by her parents who struggled to provide for her and her siblings. Her father spent his time drinking away his worries and never stepped up to look for opportunities to provide. Her mother was constantly on the look for a job but was never able to land anything. Living in Kipsongo she lived day to day without the necessities and relied on eating at Seed’s Academy for her daily meals. She would often take portions of her lunch home in her pocket for her brothers.
