Claire Ankundah

"My favorite color is blue, the color of the sky…and my uniform."

Claire is the middle child in a family of 6 girls.  She lives with her mother who works a small kiosk in the market, selling vegetables for money.  Claire’s mother and father have been separated for years and Claire has very few memories of her father.

Claire is animated, outgoing and confident.  Although a few years behind her peers in school, due to incosistent attendance, she is bright and loves Math.  She wants to be a nurse when she grows up because she doesn’t like it when people are sick.
