TRANSFORM LIVES OF CHILDREN
If I train myself from a very young age, I will grow up to become a responsible person. And today, I know how many people need protection in the world. After my mother spoke to me, I thought to myself, ‘Why shouldn’t that protector be me
I still have many years to become a School Head Boy. I hope I can become one so that I get to know the difficulties one faces in top positions. See the Prime Minister for example. He is so busy, but I am sure he faces a lot of difficulties too. I am very young, so I have to learn to tackle problems right now.
I didn’t know I was missing out so much in life! I isolated myself from all the fun and friends because of my own insecurity. Today, after knowing that it may not spread or get worsened further, I want to become a Cosmetic Surgeon and be the best that Odisha has.
These are just a few stories. There are millions of children who can benefit from our support on special occasions.
