My name is Nelly and I have seven older siblings. My father passed away, but my mother is working hard to support us. My mother is determined that I become educated, but it is challenging with so many siblings. My education is sporadic because we can’t afford school fees, a school uniform, books, and meals. My dream is to someday become a teacher and help other kids like me, but I need help to fulfill my dream. In my spare time, I like reading, playing, singing and washing.
