Naiman loves to create the traditional alpana patterns Bangladeshi women and girls paint their homes for special occasions. Her designs are always the best in the village.

But Naima wishes she could help earn money for her family. Her friend Saleem can drive his father's rickshaw. If only I had been born a boy, Naima thinks...
