My mother passed away when I was 9 years old and we didn’t have anyone to provide for us…. My older brother didn’t finish school. He got a part time job at butchery and still works there today and thats how he supported us. We were smart and we worked hard so the teachers liked us and helped support us with school shoes and books.”
