Esther is a very happy little girl, always encouraging her classmates and trying to make other people smile. She loves playing hide and seek and her favorite subject in school is science, hoping to one day become a doctor!
Esther lives with her mom, Ngombo, who was unable to get an education when she was young and can now only find small piece work jobs. Esther, her 2 brothers, and 3 sisters all help out around the house but the family really struggles to get by without a steady income. Esther is so excited to be able to go to school to get an education!
