I am proud to be a girl but I feel bad that I am unable to continue with education at this level due to extreme poverty our family is living in. My mom started looking after us solely after the death of our beloved father. Since then, she has done her best but things have not been busy. We have lived in a shack for 5 years now and before that we used to live in a shared dormitory in the slum which was crowded and even though we stay in a miserable house it is hard for my mum to raise the rent. Whenever our mum is away at night, she is worried for our safety due to the nature of the house we sleep in.
