"My life has been difficult since my parents have no good jobs. We are living from hand to mouth but we care about our lives. My life situation has worsened since my father got in an accident. We are very grateful to god for keeping us alive and giving us a place to lay our heads on. First I would like to finish school and acquire a degree. After that I would like to have a higher standard of living. I would like to open a school and teach children on how to make their dreams come true. I would like to tell other children from the slums that their background doesn't matter. What matters is where they are going, not the challenges that they came from."

Risper! Never give up on your studies. You have so much potential and the power to do so many special things. My father grew up in a very poor part of Kumasi, Ghana. When he used to get sick as a kid he always would frequent hospitals. There he fell in love with medicine and promised that he would become a doctor one day and start a hospital in his home country. It all came true! It started with him believing in himself and other believing in him.
