Here I am at the playground with my brothers. I can’t wait until they get home from school to go play together. I want to be a nurse, so I can work with my oldest brother who wants to become a doctor. The other two want to be a hairdresser and a footballer. We like to play outside, because we feel free. My favorite moment is after dinner when I can see my mum smiling and calm.
