My name is Yakshinee Boodoo and i am from Mauritius island which is next by Madagascar. I was raised by my grand parents because my mother was the only one working and couldn't take care of me and my father was doing drugs. I grew up between my mom and dad fight and with my dad going back and forth to prison. My mother found someone who agree to sponsor me for school, so, thats how i came to the US. One year after being in the US , my sponsor stopped sending money fot my tuition, and since then i have been on my own. for about 18 months, i have been taking loans, credit card, borrowed money from people and also my taxes helped me. My family is not rich, especially my mother who doesnt even have high school and she was recently diagnose with cancer. She is unable to work and if the treatment doesn't work well, she wont have a lot of time to live. My mother have always work really hard so that my sisters and i can go to school and have a good future. It is so important for me to keep studying so that i can get a good job, love the people i love and make my family proud. Life is not easy where i am from, especially if you are from a poor or modest family. If you dont have connections in the government of at least at master degree, it will be so hard to find a decent job. Please, i will be so grateful to whoever donate some money. May God Bless You All.
