Salva was a normal kid in Southern Sudan, Africa in the Dinka tribe. One day he was in school, and all of a sudden:Bullets were flying. There had been a school shooting, and Salava began to run. Salva was curious about where his family was.
Salva has now grown up a lot. He is now leading a group of boys called the lost boys. Salva has lost both his Uncle and Marial, but is a lot stronger and bold. This shows character growth,because he used to be weak and helpless, but is now strong.
Salva is now a grown man. He is living in both Southern Sudan and New York. He now raises money to give water to Southern Sudan through his "Water for Southern Sudan" foundation. He has become independant.
