Shanice lives in a dangerous part of the neighbourhood in Kingston, Jamaica.
There's been a gang war going on in her part of town for ages, and here she describes what it's like having to live with the violence.
"In Jamaica sometimes we have violence, sometimes we have peace. The violence never ends.
If the violence stops it comes back the next day. Most people say Jamaica is good, but not with the violence that is mashing up the community.
The violence affects me and my community - I'd like no violence in my community and no violence in Jamaica. I just want it to end.
I've dodged bullets
One time me and my friends were playing and a man came with a gun. He shot at us and we had to bend down because if we didn't do that the bullet might have hit us.
Although I haven't been shot yet, I think one day I might be.
I know a girl whose uncle was shot dead. He died just like the man who killed him. And another of her cousin's father was killed.
Stop the violence
I think to make this stop people have to talk to the gunmen, talk to the people who are stabbing, talk to the people who have other weapons.
They need to tell them to stop doing things to other people because someday it could happen to them.
I'd like all the violence to stop and bring in the peace and everybody in Jamaica and in other countries come and live as one.
When people get shot in the community I feel sad, I feel scared and I cry."
