My name is Nina and I am 14 years old. I live with my mother and siblings in Moldova. My parents aren’t legally married. Recently, my father left us after a social worker visited our home. Even before that, he wasn’t doing much for our wellbeing. Covering basic needs is challenging for our family. The house we live in we share with two other families. My mother can’t work because she has to take care of my 2 year old brother. The little support we receive comes from my mother’s aunt. In my free time, I help my mother and often babysit my brother. I am not a very sociable person. I like to listen to music and to sometimes draw. After graduating from middle school, I’d like to continue my studies. I want to go to a professional school and become a cook. I need your help to make my dreams come true.
