My name is Angela and this is my story. My parents lived together and my mother became pregnant with me. When my father found out that my mother was pregnant, and expecting a girl, he decided to leave. When I was four months old, my mother left me in the care of her elder sister. She went to work in Russia and never came back. I was raised by my aunt and uncle. They have two biological sons: Andrei and Alexandru, and we all get along. My uncle has a low paying factory job. My aunt has diabetes and other health problems, so she is unable to work. In the past, she worked at a dairy farm. Currently, I am in 8th grade. I am a responsible person and I do my best in school. I want to be able to fulfill my dream of becoming a doctor one day. In my spare time, I play basketball and have been playing for 4 years. I have heard of the CERI sponsorship program and I would like to have a sponsor Through your support I could join the program and reach my goals.
