Hi! My name is Nester Derera. I’m a girl aged 16. I live in an extended family. In the family, we are nine. My parents take care of my niece and two cousins. My father works as a driver and my mother as a vendor. My parents do not have enough money to meet all our basic necessities.

My favorite food is rice. My favorite hobby is dancing. On my spare time, I do dancing with my friends. Due to this COVID-19 pandemic, my parents could not afford enough money to pay school fees for me. I’m so much grateful with you guys that even though you were also affected by this Covid-19 pandemic, you are still willing to pay my school fees so that I may continue with my education. I thought this was over when my father could not afford to pay school fees for me.

When I grow up I want to be a doctor so that I treat the sick and take care of my family. Thank you!
