Christine’s mother had abandoned her when she was about 2 years old. Her father whom she was living with passed away when she was 6 years old. Christina’s uncle took her to raise. However, that uncle has 4 children of his own and could not afford to send Christina to school on a regular basis. Her interests are braiding hair and she hopes to be a beautician when she grows up.
