    Raised by a single mother, the family has struggled to make ends meet. They stay in single-roomed house and his mother is the sole provider. Her meagre incomes would not have been enough to take him to a quality school. He has great dreams and hopes that some day he will make them come. He entirely banks on his education and the exp[eriences in school to make this happen.

    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.
