My name is Alexandru and I am 16 years old. We are three children in our family. I lived at the orphanage from the first grade till the eighth grade. I needed a lot of help because of my illness. I struggled with vision problems from my childhood and I needed a special program at school. Doctors told me to wear glasses all the time, but I did not like to wear them at all. I felt miserable when I saw my mother suffering because of my health condition. When I was joyful, my mother smiled with me. As long as I was at the orphanage, my mother came to visit me. On weekends and holidays I could go home to visit my family. We lived in poverty and my parents worked hard to support us. Presently, I am a student at the Professional School. I like to go to school and I try to do my best. Because of my vision problem, I am sitting in the front bench. I enjoy going to the workshops and learn the structure of a car, how to disassemble it, then repair and assemble it. Autumn is my favorite season because of my birthday and it is colored in bright and beautiful colors. I hope to do well in school and become a good specialist. I dream to have a well-paid job and I hope to stay in the country with my mother and take care of her.
