Shanitah Nazziwa- 6 years old

Shanitah is a six-year-old girl with a younger brother. She loves teaching her young ones and acting as a teacher. Her best dish she is able to cook is Irish and Beef. Her favorite color is pink.

Her father passed as a result of HIV & AIDs last year and her mom got an accident which left her disabled, she can’t stand or sit for long periods of time and can’t do anything on her own.

They rent a single room and sometimes the mom goes for months without paying, they are always worried that the landlord is going to chase them out of the house. Sometimes they go durations without food.

Shanita’s dream is to become be a teacher.
