Peninah lives with her parents and four siblings in a small house made of handmade mud bricks. Her mother walks miles every day to sell the surplus from their garden in a market, and her father does record-keeping at a hospital all the way in town, but they struggle to provide for their household of seven. Peninah has to help out when her parents are gone by sweeping the compound they live in, but she really enjoys dancing and reading. She wants to go to school and thinks she may want to work as an engineer someday.
