Navaneshvaran, 13 years old

My dream is to become a doctor. I am inspired by Mother Teresa by seeing how she dedicated her life and profession in India to help the poor and needy.

I hope I can also use my medical knowledge to help those underprivileged in the future. In order for me to become a doctor, I need to study hard, especially to excel in my Science subjects.

We had a visit to Zoo Negara before, and it was my first-ever trip to the Zoo. I have not seen so many animals except on National Geographic. Given the chance, I would want to work in a zoo so that I can feed and take care of the animals.

I’m good in my studies although I’m at Rita Home. Some of them are surprised when I tell them that I want to be a doctor. I want to help and treat people, which is something I look forward to in the future.

I always wanted to be an entrepreneur or a businesswoman to have a good future for myself and do my part for Rita Home. With God’s grace, I passed my SPM and I hope to further my studies to accomplish my goals.

Since I was brought up in Rita Home, I wish to be a nurse so that I can help people who need medical attention. During my free time I will provide my services to Rita Home whenever possible. When I retire, I will volunteer my expertise back to Rita Home.
