My name is Inessa and I am 16 years old. I live with my mother. I am the youngest child and have three older siblings. Two of them are married and the other one is working abroad. My father died many years ago. His death caused sorrow for everyone in our family. Now it is just my mom and me. My mother has health problems. A few years ago, she had a stroke. I encourage her and help with household chores. I am in 9th grade and, after graduating from middle school, I want to continue my studies. I’d like to study culinary arts and then go to hair styling classes. I don’t have many friends and in my free time I prefer reading. My dream is to have a better life in the future and be able to support my family. I need your support to make my dreams come true.
