I am a first year student in the middle school. My mother is a subsistence farmer in the village of Youba, 35 kms from the middle school. My father died two years ago. I have six brothers and sisters. I love school and hope to be a government official some day. While in school, I live with my brother, a student in secondary school in Ouahigouya, five kms from the middle school. I come to school on foot. I am very happy to be here. My mother says this is the best school in the region. (view small | med | large | orig)
