Sarah was born in 2012 and lives in Batey Lechería in the Dominican Republic. Batey is the Haitian word for village. The older generations in Batey Lechería are Haitian. Life for Haitians in the Dominican is difficult. Unless they have sufficient funds to start their own business, which most do not, they are passed over for work because of their nationality. Dominicans prefer to hire their own countrymen.
Sarah lives with her mother and siblings, Rosa who is 16, Julio who is 14 and Libya who is eight. Her dad abandoned the family many years ago. Sarah's family lives in a humble home. Her mother sells vegetables and fruit on the streets of the village they live in.
Sarah attends public preschool. Her favorite color is white and she likes coloring a drawing.
