Meet Joanna, who has been generously sponsored by Lori Fischer Hall. She is 8 years old and in the K-1 grade this year. She lives in Gbayden, Liberia with her grandmother. Joanna’s father denied the pregnancy and shortly after her birth, Joanna’s young mother ran away because she could not afford to take care of the baby. Her interests are being with her grandmother – cooking, cleaning, going to the market – anything. Simply being with her grandmother is her favorite thing to do. She hopes to be a president when she grows up.
