September 2021: Thanks to the generous donation from Lori Fischer Hall, Blessing has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She received an incomplete for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedule. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021-2022 school year. Blessing was kept in her current grade level of ABC grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her mother’s friend and still wants to be a teacher when she grows up.

She lives in Gbayden, Liberia with her mother’s friend. Blessing’s mother has been ill for many years and could not afford to support Blessing and her brother.
