This is Mia, her life has been pretty rough since the great depression. First she lost her mom to a deadly disease, her dad has to go different towns to try to find a job, and the worst of all Mia had to drop out of school to take care of her sister.
Mia also works part time as a clothing maker but she has to bring her sister with her too. She works 12 hours a day with very little pay. That's the way they've survived all these months.
Mia has a really tough life but aside of all the stress and sadness Mia is a happy girl who tries to stay positive. But when Mia's feeling down it's her sister who cheers her up. You could probably say that they need each other.
