My name is Inessa and I am 14 years old. I live with my older sister and her family. I used to live with my mother, but 7 years ago she passed away. My sister struggles to take care of me and my 4 cousins. She and her husband don’t have stable jobs. They work for a daily wage or work abroad in Russia for short periods of time. I am not a very sociable person and only have a few friends. I am fond of art, especially drawing. School is challenging for me, so I am not sure what I’m going to do after graduating from middle school. Because I see so many unmet needs in my family, I’d like to find a job and start working right after middle school. I need your sponsorship and support in order to have a brighter future.
