My name is Aanatharasa and I’m 19 years old. I’m living with my mother and grandmother. I’m an only child. My father left us when I was just one year old. I still get upset when I think about my father leaving us. My mother tries to manage our finances with her small income, but she struggles very much. My grandmother cannot work because of her poor hearing, and she worries about not being able to help my mother financially. I’m now studying in advanced level classes and they are difficult. I earn good grades, and I would like to be a lawyer one day. I have issues with my spinal cord that cause me to get headaches and chest pain often. I am unable to participate in sports activities, but I am getting treatment that should last a year. I want to continue with my education and provide for my family. I am not sure what my future holds, but I remain hopeful. With your support, I can continue my education and achieve my goals.
