My mother was wrongfully convicted of murder when a drunk man fell off a hill near our house. She was sentenced to one year in prison, leaving me and my 6 siblings alone with my mentally disabled father. As siblings we worked together to survive until my mother was released. Immediately after that COVID hit. My older sisters are now too old to return to school. But I can still finish if only I had the resources. If not, I will likely be required to marry to help take the pressure of feeding me off my family. Without an education, I will marry into poverty and be unable to help my family. I want to graduate so I can end this cycle of poverty.
