Merisa’s father left the family when she was very little, leaving her and her sibling in the care of their young mom. They now live in a small house built with hand-made mud bricks, and her mother provides for the family by walking miles to the market to sell goods each day. Merisa herself works by carrying water from a river in big, heavy containers for washing and cooking. She, however, really enjoys singing. Merisa wants to go to school, and for now dreams of working as a nurse one day.
