"My" Girls

Below are the girls I spend the most time with. They are such joy in my life! All are in 10th grade and all were my students in 5th and 6th grade. Gil wanted to pracitice with portraiture, and after taking 10,000 pictures of Grace, needed new subjects. My girls were happy to oblige!

Lotta is a Finnish MK. She is one of the best students in her class, and she makes us laugh with her wit and sarcasm.

Aishi is Tanzanian. She is usually fun and easy-going, but not when she is on the soccer pitch or the basketball court! She is probably the best female athelete at school.

Bernice is part Indian and part Malaysian. Her parents run a church in Dar es Salaam. She is the best soccer goalie in school, and is quite artistic as well.

Lea is a German MK. She is also one of the best students in her class, and is absolutely delightful as "Juliet" in the upcoming Shakespeare production.

Dorothy is Tanzanian and her Dad works at school. She is also a menance in any sports competition, but really a romantic at heart!
