"I was born into a family of 6 in a remote area. We are totally reliant on the income from the farm to support us. We are recognized as a semi-poverty household and receive monthly financial support from the government.
My hobbies are painting, cooking and decorating things. I love art and I am pretty handy. I really like creating new things from old and unwanted items that people can enjoy. This, I consider to be my proudest strength. However, sometimes, I do not have faith in my own abilities and this makes me hesitant. I rarely express myself, and I am afraid to communicate with new people.
My feeling is KOTO is the right place for me to start my dream. Joining this family, I have opportunities to study and raise my awareness of the possibilities available. KOTO provides me with a solid foundation to build upon the kindness of every member - the trainees, the teachers, the volunteers and more. Therefore, I feel like I am back in my real home again".
