Susan is the second-born child in a family of three. Her eldest brother is in high school. Two years back her mother was diagnosed with a heart disease that has taken toll on their meagre earnings. Their father is a casual construction worker and everything he earns goes to treating their ailing mother. Her elder brother has been out of school due to huge fees balance. Despite the family challenges, Susan has kept her dream alive. She has constantly worked hard in school and her dream is to become a doctor so as to help people like her mother. She believes in Nelson Mandela's quote that education is the greatest weapon that one can use to change the world.

Hello Susan,

My name is Lydia, and I am so glad to have gotten connected with you. I live in Singapore, which is a very small country in Asia, and like you, I was born in 2004. I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother but I find it so inspirational that you want to work in medicine because of it. You seem like a very smart girl and I hope that you will be able to one day fulfill your dream of becoming a neurosurgeon.

I wanted to send my best wishes to you with the pandemic at the moment. I was wondering how the virus is where you are and if you are able to attend school at the moment because of it? My school had actually shut down in March, but we are back at school now.

I really admire your positivity and energy towards learning, I have no doubt that you will be able to achieve what you hope for in the future if you continue to work as hard as you are now,

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
