I dropped out of school when my family ran out of money due in large part to my abusive father who spends all of his money on alcohol. I started working manual labor, hauling bricks & sand to construction sites. I saved every shilling I could so I could return to school. The kids often tease me because I am so much older than them. But I am committed to completing my education so I can break this cycle of poverty and rescue my mother and siblings from domestic violence. I will become a man who fights for women and not against them.
