“Both of my parents passed away when I was a young boy. When I was small, my parents always told me that ‘Education is the best solution of a problem.’ It inspires me towards my goals. I studied in my village until Grade-6 when I fled to a refugee camp, but I had no goal. /1
Now I want to be a medic, who works in the hospital.
Before I become a medic, I have to complete university.
Before I attend university, I have to finish my GED first.
By the grace of God, I have a chance to study in the @PartnersRelief GED program. /2
