JOHN, 13

John lives with his mother and his two younger siblings in a small house, directly next to a river. During the last flood one side of the small house was washed away by the strong current. His mother works as a food vendor but earns very little money. John is 13 and a very hard-working and dedicated student. Despite all the obstacles life has put in his way he finished his Primary School Leaving Examination with grade A average. He likes Science and Mathematics and his dream is to become a Doctor.
