I met Sifa in the DRC this summer, of the numberous I took of my friend, I really think this portrait manages to capture a little of her very kind, warm and friendly nature. Sifa, 18, has recently finished her baccalaureate and this october, with the continued support of Menelik Education, started a degree in International Relations at the protestant University of Kinshasa.  She lives in and amongst the lively village-like bustle of Mama Jacquis compound, a safe haven for many, with her mother and younger brother Patrice.
