THE STORY:

“I was brought up by both parents 
until my father left and set off to an 
unknown destination,” Juliet said. 
Her mother was left to raise Juliet, 
Juliet’s brother and two sisters. For 
Juliet, receiving an education was a 
ticket out of a life of working as 
house help. “I would have repeated 
primary school over and over until I 
got a sponsor to go to school. My 
education is that important to me,” 
she said.

Juliet aspires to become an 
aeronautical engineer. “I would like 
to go to a university in order to gain 
knowledge about my career so that I 
will one day open doors for the 
disadvantaged.” As important as 
education is to Juliet, she still feels 
homesick from time to time. “I miss 
my brother the most,” she said. “He 
is wonderful and a good advice giver. 
He is one of a kind and good at 
protecting our family.” Juliet is 
happy that she is able to go to high 
school and eventually assist her 
brother in helping the family.
