    I live with both of my parents and they own a small piece of land which we till and the produce helps sustain the family. This is usua;lly not enough most of the time and we supplement it by my parents doing some other menial jobs as casual labourers. At times we had to interrupt our studies to help out our parents. I love playing soccer.
