    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.
