Elise is no average girl. Brought to the children’s home at the age of five, she was a carer of two siblings through her nights on the streets, had always been a fighter and a leader, and is now a pattern for many at her home.
She also wants to be a doctor when she grows up and is already a highly skilled blood pressure taker.
Finally, meet Alejandra. She sings in Quechua, has a beautiful voice, and most likely will become the next Renata Flores. But most importantly, green apple dum dums are her favorite.
Quillacollo, Bolivia • Back at the children’s home, Gabriel was quite the fighter.
He and his twin sister had been found beside a river.
He made it, but tragically his sister didn’t.
