My life before HandUp

I used to sell water and drinks on the streets, but it was hard because I got my money stolen. Also, there are a lot of people selling drinks so it hard to make money with so much competition.

My life at HandUp

I am new to HandUp and am learning how to make their bracelets. I am artistic and am currently in sewing classes so I am happy to see how I can contribute to this work.

What I have learned

I want to make it in life. I want to work and not have anything to do. Now that I am working at HandUp, I have a reason to get up.

My hopes for the future

I want to be a great artist and painter.

Just for fun
