Grace, 22

My mother passed away from cancer when I was 5 years old. I always wonder how my life would have been with my mother, I miss her every day. I only remember a few instances of when I was with her; she was so beautiful and kind. When my mother passed away, my father decided not to take care of me, he wasn’t really in my life at all. There were moments when I was a child where I wished I had parents to go home to, especially after seeing all of my friends go home to their parents. I am now 22 years old and currently stay at home with no job, basically doing nothing. I have a dream to go back to school and continue learning, but I am unable to because I failed my test to enter Secondary School. Growing up, I wasn’t in an environment that pushed me to learn, I did not work hard. Looking back, I wished I valued education more because education changes lives. My life would be completely different if I passed that exam. If I had the chance to go back to school, I would love to be a nurse. Helping people as a job seems like such an amazing opportunity. I want to help those who are sick, just like my mother was when I was unable to help her
