I left my parents and came with my younger sister here to the refugee settlements. I’m 25 years old but still in primary school. I’m determined to study hard and to become somebody. I take the food ration the UN gives us in the refugee settlement and cut it in half. I sell ½ and use the other ½ for my own food. I eat once in a day to save for school fees so I can study in University. I don’t want to depend on anyone. I want to support myself. I am determined.
The youth should come together to build peace and focus on attaining skills to develop South Sudan for when we return home. A lot of youth are doing drugs and drinking at discos, but if they can get involved in a savings group, it can change everything.
