Op, Age 15,
When Op finished sixth grade at her village’s one-room schoolhouse, her parents sent her to live in the valley with an acquaintance so she could attend seventh grade.
The acquaintance was first abusive and then abandoned her.
She is now living at Warm Heart.
Even though she experienced a very difficult time, her natural poise and maturity have led other girls to come to her for support. She has become a role model for other girls at Warm Heart.
She hopes to one day be a soldier or police officer.
