The most difficult part of my life was when my father left us when I was still young. My mother had no money and no job. This family condition stressed me a lot in my studies. What I learned from that is to work hard at school so that I will be able to help my mother and my siblings. I want to be an electrical engineer. I have to study hard and take PCM, which means physics, chemistry, and mathematics. I felt proud when I was accepted at a secondary school for girls and then received a scholarship from TSF. It helped me very much. I was happy when my form 4 national examination results were very good. Two years from now I want to have finished my advanced level education and passed with flying colors.
