Every kid has a dream. Mine is simple. I want to become a computer engineer so I could work abroad and help my family. This house we are living in may be great but this is not enough. I want to make this house better and I want to make this store bigger. However, still being at 9th grade, that is not happening soon. This is why I’m really focused in my studies and of course helping this small business. Right now, I want to keep my dream alive - and someday, I'll become Ben, the computer engineer.
