Oretha struggled with an ongoing illness during most of her school year and her attendance dropped.  She was retained in first grade. She was disappointed that she was not promoted; especially because she got a double promotion last year due to great academic performance.  Her health condition has improved.  Disappointed, but ready for a challenge, Oretha is looking forward to going back to school.  Thanks to GPA’s amazing sponsors for giving Oretha a chance to go back to improve her academic performance and move forward with her life goals.  Feisty little one she is!  It’s not usual for Liberian girls to stray into male dominated vocational areas but Oretha is determined she will someday be a mechanic!  Sponsored by:  Masako Lackey
