Suzen is one of nine children in her family. She has three brothers and five sisters. She lives with her parents and siblings in a six-room brick house that has mud floors and a metal roof, in Mpinka, Zambia. Suzen is in grade six at Chikwanda Primary School and her best subject is English. She loves going to school and wants to continue her education. Her favourite pastimes are singing songs, dancing, and playing netball with her friends. At home, she helps with the household chores. Suzen would like to become a nurse someday. At the Serenje Sponsor Site, the Sisters of Mary Immaculate provide children with school fees and materials, and proper nutrition. Parents and guardians attend business training workshops to learn how to supplement their incomes.
