The story of Mita, daughter of Wasini:

I love Indonesian Language lessons because I feel something joyous in them. I felt little difficult to make adaptation with my new friends. But I know it’s ok. I am happy to be one of them. I have joined tae kwondo martial arts club. I usually do the exercise after school. I and my family are live together, peaceful and happy.

I have two younger sisters who are still studying at school. We have our own unpretentious house. I am grateful for the loan given to me. With it I can continue my studies. My hometown is Tritih Wetan Village, Jeruklegi Subdistrict, Cilacap regency, Mid Java Province. The road conditions around my village are not good and much is broken.

My father is a laborer; his salary is not fixed. It is around Rp. 500,000/month. The number of children in our family is three. They are Widiastuti (13 years old), Maelinda (7 years old), and me (15 years old). We are students. During my time in this school I have learned Accounting. The job that I wish to have is secretary/financial staff member. Something fun in this school is having new friends and new teachers.
