Many young people dream of achieving high qualifications from school in order to work in a formal office.

But for Edward Sheck, he chooses to be an altar boy.

“We have different roles to play in our Catholic Church congregation.

“What we do is we serve our Priest every Sunday during our Sunday services,” he told Village Voice.“We lead the service inside our church and walk together with our Priest.”

Edward enjoys being a altar boy and is aiming to become a Priest in the future.

“I’ve enjoy being an altar boy for seven years now. I first served when I was twelve years old, it’s important for me because I have to prepare myself for what God plans for me in the future.

“It helps especially in our Christian lives as we grow older and we know what we want to do. 

“I’m thankful for this opportunity to serve as an altar boy for my church and to make my family proud.

Edward is keen to share his views and motivate other young boys to become altar boys in the future.

“It’s not only for in the church, but you can also be a good example for others who may not want to follow in your footsteps.

“What I’m aiming for is to have a better job for the future caring for my family and developing my own.

Edward wants to become a doctor in the future.

“As of now, I attend the University hoping that my dream of becoming a doctor will be successful so that I can help my family and my parents.

“I used to be a part-time worker at Bluebird. I want to earn some more money helping out my family in any way I can.

Edward encourages others to choose what is right for them to achieve and have for the future.

“Being an altar boy and a student at the same time is not easy but you’ve got to work hard and have a kind heart for your own good.”
