Yasmeen

I get water from the tube well in school which looks clean but now that we have received LifeStraw water filters I will get safe water. I hope I will not have stomach aches and fevers anymore.

My name is Yasmeen Bono. I am 12 years old and in the 8th grade. I am the forth born in a family of 6. I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters. My parents are both farmers.  My school is called Seth Gadesilal Government Higher Secondary School. I like my school as I do not have to walk a long distance to get here though sometimes we do not have electricity so we experience water shortage and I am forced to carry water from home.  I want to study Biology because when I grow up I want to be a doctor who can help the sick get well. I enjoy working on computers here in school. Before we got them in school, I used to go to a local centre for learning computers which was free but they moved away. My role model is Doctor (B.R.) Ambedkar (who wrote the India’s first constitution). I was awarded 100% attendance for the whole of last year and was given a pen as a gift.
