My name is Bindu, and I am 16 years old and in 9th grade. I have an elder sister and younger brother and all of us study in the same school. I like to watch TV, especially cartoons. I play and do arts and crafts in my free-time.
I love my school. The best thing about my school is that we get a really good education, and they teach us how to be a good human being and build good character.
I would love it if our school improved in the sports area and included more sports.
I love Kannada and Math. Kannada is my mother tongue and math is a very interesting subject. My favorite teacher is Mr. Shivanna. He takes care of us like a father, gives good advice, and corrects us whenever we make mistakes.
COVID time was difficult especially with online classes. Listening to the class through a tablet was a task. Sometimes the internet wasn’t working, and I would miss a few classes.
It was a difficult time for my family. My mother is a domestic help and my father is a watchman. My father could not work, and it was a struggle for us financially. Now that COVID has reduced, I am able to come to school and my parents are able to go to work. Now, we are doing much better.
When I first came back to school, I was so happy to see my friends after such a long time. It was exciting to see my school and teachers.
This year I am going to 10th grade, and I am excited about that. I want to become a good person as I grow up and help our community. I want to come back to Bloom Mercy School and help them provide free education to more and more students. I want to become a lawyer once I grow old.
