Just A Girl

Just  A Girl
Just A Girl
Sometimes there is no value of many pages that you wrote as much as a real story because a story is the best told only by whom lived .
Here is the story ;
"Dear Everbody, 
I'm just a girl out of many girls who lives in the world.  Now I would like to tell you about me how education changed my life, thank to you and your support. 
My story started with the divorce of the mother and father of a 6-month-old girl. Until the age of 7, my mother lived in the same house with my two grandmothers. We, two people remained after my mother's marriage and one of my grandmother's death.
My school life started in a small village school. After completing my primary school life in this village school, I had to go to boarding school. It was not a problem for me to have a boarding school, but leaving my grandmother was a big problem. Because she was and she is my biggest supporter in my whole life .
So I thought many times about leaving school. I loved my teachers very much. Because I think the teaching profession is a very sacred profession. I loved my physical education teacher. She was preparing us for athletics competitions. The biggest reason I did not leave school was my physical education teacher.
Our teacher was very interested in us, sought solutions to our problems. Then I went to Anatolian High School with an exam. I was farming on the weekends to buy a test book.
Most of my relatives used to say that it was unnecessary to work for making money and that I would not have to work if I got married. I always hated this thought when I saw that my mother had to get permission from her husband when she wanted to see me. I did not get additional lessons for the exam. I had to help with household works at home.
Even though I could not get the score I wanted, I succeded to enter into to the university instead of listening to them. even though it was not the department I wanted. Whatever I do in life, it is my greatest chance that my grandmother stands like a rock behind me. Now I want to raise hopeful students for the future.Because I just graduated from university and became a teacher.
Just a Girl "
Many thank to our supporters who help enabling us to finish the stories wlth happly ended stories.
Yours Sincerely,
Buldan Foundation
