“I am studying in class 10 (Arts). We are 2 brothers and 4 sisters. My father has no permanent job. I am the elder one among my sisters. It was very difficult to bear the expense of our studies with the basic necessities of life. 4 years ago, I left studying after giving my ninth grade exams because of poor conditions at home. After some time when our condition got better than before, I got admission in Gulshan Park School in ninth class again.
