They broke down crying when they weren't able to get a bank loan to send me overseas for further studies.
I still want to continue my studies because my parents taught me to never give up.
There's so much I want to do for my parents as well.
I want to work so they won't have to work anymore. I want to get them a home as we don't have one of our own.
I want my parents to smile and be proud of me again.
My disability makes it difficult for me to walk. Both my legs ache a lot when I go out walking for a long time.
But I've never let it hold me back or make me sad.
I don't worry about what other people say. They are not going to look after me.
My mother is my biggest supporter. She is only able to work three days a week and the truth is, what she makes isn't enough to support our family.
My parents divorced so I live only with my mother and younger sister .
Some days my mother and younger sister would go hungry but mother would always make sure that I had food.
It's hard when I see that happen. It makes me want to get up and be able to do more for my family.
I sometimes wonder why? Why does my mother look after me so well? Why do I get treated better?
My mother would tell me that she believes I'll be the one who would be able to lift up our family.
Me, the daughter with a disability.
Thank you for believing in me, I want to make you proud.
