Prisca lives with her parents and an older sister and older brother. They rent 2 rooms in an urban slum where they’ve lived for the last 10 years. They share a communal toilet and water tap with their neighbors.

At night her mother keeps their door locked as the neighborhood can be very noisy and dangerous. Prisca’s father works far away on a large farm. Prisca is a quiet and curious introvert with gentle manners; she’s loves to participate in group activities. Her favorite subject is Math and she wants to be an accountant or a lawyer.
