I am the oldest of 9 children. Sadly, 3 of my siblings have already died. My mother suffers from severe mental illness and my father is mostly absent in my life. I walk 7 kilometers to school and back every day because I am determined to help support my mother and younger sisters. I am about to finish primary school and will likely be asked to drop out to provide a living for my family unless I can get a sponsor. This is concerning but I am even more concerned for what will happen when my sisters reach my age and are asked to drop out and get married. I want to be a doctor so I can help people with mental illness and prevent childhood heaths.
