    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.

Challenges at home made it difficult to concetrate in school and at some point repeated school or had to delay some classes until his family was able to raise enough funds. He works hard in school and hopes to be successful in future and give back to the society.

    I love my family because of the support they give me to achieve my dreams. I am closest to my mother and sister as they are always around whenever I need them. I am talented in soccer and I love playing since it helps me grow phisically. I dream of becoming a pilot since planes fascinate me a lot. I also wish to give back to the society ina big way.
