Ameena, her parents, and two sisters live in a one-room, tin shed house in Dhaka. Her family shares a cooking stove and toilet with some other families who live nearby. Ameena says that in summer the house gets very hot and is uncomfortable. Ameena’s grandparents live in a small village, in a house with a mud floor, bamboo walls, and no power or gas. To earn money Ameena’s father drives a van and her mother works as a cook. Ameena feels happy when she gets good grades at school. She likes to help others and dreams of becoming a doctor. After school Ameena takes a bath, has something to eat, studies, and looks after her younger sister. For fun Ameena likes to go outside and enjoy the day.
