Because of family income crisis, with many siblings, and my father has a chronic illness, I was sent to the boarding house to access education. I think if I was in Burma I would not be able to go to school.
My name is Say Say and I am 17 years old. I am living at the CDC girl dormitory and studying grade 10 at the Children Development Center (CDC). I am originally from Kaw Ka Rate Township, Nant Kaw Kay village. I have lived in the boarding house for 6 years.
I have contact with my family and right now they are living in the village and they are farmers. Because of family income crisis, with many siblings, and my father has a chronic illness, I was sent to the boarding house to access education. I think if I was in Burma I would not be able to go to school.
I like living in the boarding house because I meet with different friends from different areas and we all are under good supervision from our boarding house master. My favorite subjects are English and Thai because I want to be a good translator and interpreter in the future. With these skills I can apply or use them as my career in the future. Compared to my past, before living in the boarding house and after living in the boarding house, I have improved a lot. When I realize myself, I have improved in all aspects of social; friendship with other friends and I have more discipline and have improved my leadership skills. I like to knit and sew during my free time. I want to be an interpreter and translator because with these skills I can support myself, as well as helping others.
