"I am the first of three children. My younger siblings are elementary school students. I am a first grader in vocational school now. However, it looks like my parents are having trouble funding our studies. The money we get from selling meatballs is nearly sufficient to fund our daily needs. To be honest, I don’t want to give my parents any more trouble, but I’m still in no position to be of much help. That’s why I’d be glad if there’s a way for me to keep on studying without giving my parents more trouble."
