Instead of being at school preparing for her forthcoming exams, Yashika, a top student at Oasis Academy Hadley, is currently detained at Yarl's Wood detention centre and facing deportation.
Yashika and her family fled to the UK from Mauritius two years ago when their lives were under threat. Yashika is now 18, an adult, and Theresa May MP has decided to separate her from her family and send her back 'home'
To deport an 18 year old schoolgirl, uprooting her from her mother, brother and sister is heartless. To do so just weeks before exams that will complete her education is just plain cruel. To do so on Mother's Day is just adding insult to injury.
Yashika was due to be deported on a BA flight on Tuesday. But BA is alleged to have refused to fly her.
Now Air Mauritius is set to take her on Sunday.
