She is wearinga colorful, traditional outfit with many patterns. She speaks French because the DemocraticRepublic of Congo was formerly a colonized by Belgium.

She talks about playing in the streets and gathering sweetpotatoes in the fields for her family then going to bed with no worries because everything waspeaceful.
