In this photo taken Nov. 25, 2012, Filipino slum dweller Jessa Balote, right, talks with another student as she stretches before the start of classes at Ballet Manila in the Philippine capital. Balote, who used to tag along with her family as they collect garbage at a nearby dumpsite, is a scholar at Ballet Manila's dance program. As an apprentice, she makes around 7,000 pesos ($170) a month, sometimes double that, from stipend and performance fees. (AP Photo/Aaron Favila)
