Aideline 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.
Aideline lives with her mom and her sister Genesis who is four years old. The family lives in a very humble home. Aideline's father abandoned the family when her mom was pregnant for her. Mom sells groceries and veggies for a living. The income generated from selling small groceries and veggies is not sufficient to sustain the family.
Aideline attends public school and is in 1st grade. Her favorite color is red and she would like to be a doctor in the future.
