“In our family, we are four children. We are all daughters. I am the eldest of among those four children. My mother and my father are working in a farm in order to get money for us to get our basic needs and for school activities, like to buy uniform. I was already knowing the impact of studying like maybe to help my parents, so going to school, I was walking one hour and half. Total is three hours per day.
My life before meeting the Sisters of Mary School was not easy. I was not sure whether I could continue my studies after Primary School because we are really poor.”
“Here in the Sisters of Mary, there is free electricity and also I have my own chair and also I have my own books and my bag. I have a lot of friends here in Sisters of Mary because my friends, they like to run like me. I like to run because I make my body to be strong. If I run and I’ll be the first one, I’ll be happy because I know in my ambition I can succeed. My favourite subject is electrical because I want to make my own business about electrical, and it will help the people who don’t have electricity. I know through the Sisters of Mary I can complete my ambition.
It is really a great privilege to be studying here at the Sisters of Mary. Here my good future is prepared. In my future I would like to be a business woman because for now I study commerce, a subject that helps me to be a business woman, I would like to get money and use it also to help others. I am very interested to learn the vocational training courses that the School is offering us especially in the Electrical Installation. I can apply what I learn and find job and even to continue with my higher studies if I can get more money.”
