In school you’re taught a lesson and given a test but in life you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.
Whatever the struggles, we’re also encouraged to never give up.
That’s mantra for Jacinta Matulino, 18 years old from Moamoa.
“I want to become an accountant,” Jacinta says.
“My parents both work to provide for our family financially but we (her other siblings) are still in school.
“I am the second of my parent’s six children, and what we’re doing now is to continue on our studies with high hopes of getting better jobs in the future.”
She believes that dreams are not realised unless one is willing to work hard.
For her, she is looking for a sponsor to help her realise her dream.
“To be honest, when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will do everything you can just to be successful,” she said.
“It will be a great opportunity for not just me, but my family if someone is willing to help us out.
“School is starting in a week and everything depends on money. I’m believing for some help.”
