September 2021: Thanks to the generous donation from Lori Fischer Hall, Oretha 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. Oretha was kept in her current grade level of 3rd grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her grandfather and still wants to be a nurse when she grows up.

She lives in Gbeleyee Town, Liberia with her grandfather.  Her father mysteriously died 2 years ago. Her mother also died last year from malaria.
