My name is Iurie. I am 16 years old and I come from a big family. I have 3 sisters and 3 brothers. My mother stays home to take care of my younger siblings. Three years ago, my father abandoned the family. I am now responsible for many things that the man of the house should do. Usually I work during school breaks in construction or some seasonal job to support the family. I am a responsible and hardworking person. This year I graduated from middle school. My favorite subjects were technological education and computer classes. I’d like to continue my studies in IT, electronic technologies or telecommunications. I want to go to a professional school or college so that I can make a career in one of these fields. I like practicing sports, especially Taekwondo. We don’t have a sports club in our village but, if I am able to study in Chisinau, I’d like to join one. I need your help to make my dreams become a reality.
