Fighter, that’s me!
I was abandoned by my mum when I was a baby. My dad has brain damage due to drug overdoes, and he has been staying at a community hospital. My grandmother takes care of me. She is 80 years old.
When I was younger, my grandmother will take the bus with me to school from Woodlands to Bukit Purmei everyday. It takes about 1.5 hours to get to school. Even though she walks very slowly, she will still go with me.
I was also hyperactive, and to get what I want, I will bully others. I found it hard to tell people what I want, to tell them my thoughts or ideas. I was not doing well in school, I did not know how to do well.
I joined Life Community a few years ago. I have a caseworker who will visit me regularly. I also joined the “I Coach You” program, as well as tuition classes at Life Community, to improve my studies. Slowly, I can see that I can control myself, my anger and frustration much better than before.
Guess what, I also passed my PSLE! I have improved so much and want to continue on this path.
