My name is Roosevelt. I am living with my parents in Gwo Jan. I am 27 years old. I have finished high school, but I haven’t had the opportunity to go to university yet. My greatest dream is to go to university to study computer science. Since high school I have taken professional classes in construction and electrical work. I also teach biology and Creole at a middle school here in Gwo Jan.
I was born into a family of 8 children. One died, and there are 7 left; 3 girls and 4 boys. My mother’s name is Derilia Day. She is a seamstress, and it is with this job that she was able to pay for all our education. It is because she works so hard to provide for our education, that I would like to go to university, so I can help her when I finish.
