About

Joana was born in Inhambane province, where she lived with her parents. She is a very quiet girl and helpful. After fulfilling her homework and household duties, she plays with her friends. She is orphaned of parents. Her mother died in 2003 when the girl was 2 months old, due to illness, and her father died in 2013, victim of illness as well. He used to be a mechanic. After her father’s death, she moved to live with her aunt that works as a clerk at a butcher. What she earns is not enough to sustain the whole family and pay the girl’s school expenses.

Hello Sommer,
Wuaw, Arizona is far away. I like to read too. In my free time I love to revise the subjects we studied at school and play with my friends and my 4 brothers. Is it cold where you are living?

Hug, Joana
