Being the first born in my family, I have seen clearly how my parents struggle to make our life better, but with no fruits. It has been always hard to cover schooling costs and take care of the family at the same time. At a tender age, I had already started helping my parents in their farms and other activities which give us income.
The most difficult experience I have ever had was when my parents failed to pay for my school requirements on time, so I had to extend my holiday. When I arrived at school, I was heavily punished by the school authority. From this, I learnt that poverty is a painful matter and that I have to study hard now so that I can help my parents in future.
When we were graduating O-level education; I was honored as the most outstanding student of my class. I was awarded seven certificates of excellence. This was the moment when I felt proud of myself.
The happiest and memorable thing of my life was when I met Madam Judy. She told me that she is proud of me and she is ready to continue to support me.
My dream is to become the CEO of a big private company. I will reach there by putting more and more emphasis on my studies. I am currently taking a Bachelor of Applied Marketing and entrepreneurship. With this career, I will help my parents by supporting their social and financial welfare. I will give help to students in WEF’s School Fund and transform my community by teaching financial literacy and doing inclusive projects around my community.
