Orphan from father and mother since the age of 10, I stayed with the grandfather. But he also died a bit later. I endured too much suffering, and I accepted to be a street vendor of pure water bags on behalf of a mama. My salary of 5$ (per month) was unfortunately not enough to feed me and dress me. As I can play ball, I still dream to become a football player. At the same time, I so much want to study.
