Henrietta is the youngest child in a family of 11. The family has no source of income, so Henrietta's future education is uncertain. Her older brothers are unable to help as they also have large families. Henrietta is an intelligent, academically capable girl, but she faces difficulties in completing primary school. She has never had text books, instead just borrowing the basics. The probability of her going to secondary school after completion is very slim if no one offers to support her.


Henrietta has an older brother, Godlove, who is also struggling with his education, but he sometimes completes odd jobs to subsidise himself.

Favourite colour: Black 

Favourite food: Rice and Stew

She wants to become: A seamstress
