Rebecca is a 16 year old girl with all the hopes and dreams of any teenage girl. She has cared for her handicapped sister Kadogoo since she was7, the age she was when the child was born. She is an excellent student and has hopes of becoming a doctor. Her scholastic accomplishments tell us that she can, indeed, fulfill those dreams. She is currently sponsored by a doctor in Austin, Texas and wants to be “just like Dr. Chris” she says. The school where she is boarding is very strict. Students wear a uniform and no “street” clothes are allowed. So when on break, Rebecca loves to dress up like any teenager. APV makes sure that twice a year during the month long school holidays that Rebecca and the other girls are taken shopping and have the opportunity to learn life skills such as shopping wisely. In spite of a family that has to struggle just to survive, Rebecca is upbeat and confident that she will become that doctor she dreams of becoming and will be able to help other handicapped children.
