She Was Born In A Tree In Mozambique 17 Years Ago, This Is What She Looks Like Now

In 2000, in Mozambique, a baby was born in a tree and was rescued in the nick of time by soldiers during floods. 17 years later, what has become of the baby?

Her name is Rosita Mabuiango, although she is known only as "the girl born in a tree". The young woman, who is celebrating her seventeenth birthday today, was interviewed by an AFP journalist and declares that she does not like this sad notoriety: "I was just born in a slightly original way."

Despite this crazy story, Rosita has taken a long step back, has a Catholic education and now wants to focus on her studies. She's considering becoming a petrochemical engineer. A choice that is not due to chance since large gas reserves have recently been discovered in her country. In her free time, Rosita plays football with her friends.
