My name is Joel Okoth and I am 13 years old. I came to this school last year and am now in sixth grade. My favorite subject is science and I enjoy reading in my free time. School helps me learn; that’s why I like it. I would like to become a doctor later. I have eight siblings, seven of them still live at home. In addition, the three children of my big sister live with us. So we are eleven children all together! My parents can hardly cope with the costs for all of us. My mother doesn’t work and my father doesn’t earn enough as a security guard.
If you support me, you will help my whole family.
