Rupshi is eight years old, in the Lower Kindergarten class, and is thankful for the NCF Hostel. She is very shy and nervous, still trying to find her place at the hostel, having only been there for eight months. She rarely smiles but when she does, the room seems to brighten and lift at such a rare occurrence. She prefers to watch from afar, but will always happily join in an activity if it involves crayons.
Both of Rupshi’s parents are farmers, and she has one older sister, three younger sisters, and two younger brothers. Her favorite color is green, her favorite animal is a cow, and her favorite activity is dancing. Rupshi wants to grow up to become a doctor.
