Florence: S832-DEW



Meet six-year-old Florence, she lives with her mother and three siblings.  She wants to be a police officer one day.  Her father passed away two months ago and now the family is dealing with the grief of his passing and the stress of their precarious financial situation.  There’s no time to grieve; Florence’s mother must creatively figure out ways to help her family survive.  Florence’s hair was cut very low as a cultural symbol of her identity as a child whose father has died.  Florence and her mother are very thankful for the gift of a scholarship.
