About

Genesis lives with her mother and an elder sister, who is 20. They live in a small house built by the government but had to take out a loan for it, which they are now working to pay back. Genesis is a very bright student and managed to get a place at one of the best state secondary schools in the city. This means a long daily journey from her house on the outskirts, as the school is in the middle of the city, but she says she doesn't mind this (most days!). She enjoys most subjects at school, and is also very fond of animals. This is why she would one day like to become a vet.

Thank you, Jessica and Erzsebet. I hope you are happy. I try to study hard. My mum and my sister help me a lot. I have some teachers who I like too and who encourage me to work. I hope that I can do well.
Very best of luck to you Genesis! It sounds like you've worked so hard in school so far... don't stop now! I have a daughter the same age as you and she too loves theater and hates math - I hope you can enjoy your passions and thrive with your education. Make your family proud!

    I am the second born of five children. We live with our parents, my father and mother. It is a happy family and our parents do everything they can to keep us going. We all depend on my father's meager income and sometimes it becomes difficult to support my older sister in school. I have great ambitions of making it in life and I believe I can achieve my greatest goals with a good education. I have always committed to see this pass and the TSF support is the right platform for me and am grateful.
