Most mornings, Yurani walks alone to the bus that takes her to the local university, a short 15-minute ride away.
Though she walks alone, Yurani knows she has her family and the entire Unbound community beside her.
Before heading off to catch a bus, Yurani helps her younger brother, Daniel, make the bed. Some weekdays, she also helps her mother prepare lunch for the whole family.
For Yurani, cooking meals is one of her favorite chores, and it gives her good practice for her studies. Yurani is studying gastronomy, or the art and science of gourmet cuisine.
“When I was younger my dream was to be a chef,” Yurani said. “[Now] my dream is to have my own restaurant.”
