My name is Sergiu. I am 15 years old and I live in Moldova. I am in 8th grade and I do my best to get good results. I come from a socially vulnerable family. My parents struggle with alcoholism and there was always arguing and shouting in our house. My father often abused my mother and I felt miserable. My mother did not take care of me or prepare meals. It seemed as if she was totally absent in my life. The conditions in our house were terrible. I often would go with my sister and asked for food in the street. At the age of 7, I was placed, with my sister, in a children’s shelter. Here we found many friends. It was like my second family. It was warm and safe. I like to bring joy to people around me by preparing surprises for them and I like to help people in a variety of situations. I am a creative, responsible and sociable person. I enjoy reading various books. My dream is to become a talented home designer. I need your support to be able to realize my dream.
