Profile

My name is Chen Shunsheng, I am 15 years old and I am from Qi Zu Camp, Luomei Village, Mingyin Countryside, Yulong County in Lijiang City.

My home is situated in the mountains, our source of income is difficult, and the transportation is not very convenient. Our family situation has not changed drastically and our medical condition lags behind. People can only travel by walking. My family relies on planting crops and feeding livestock to earn money.

Our living conditions are tough, and our source of income is limited. We rely on planting crops, such as beans, potatoes etc, to support our family. The money remaining is used to support my brother's and my education. My family members are also not doing very well: my grandpa is almost 80, yet he still goes looking for pigweed everyday. He is restless at home, and he always tries to find things to do. My father is almost 50 years old, and he still has to support the whole family. His health condition is not very good either. He can't eat many things because of his illnesses, and for the past 1-2 years, he has been taking medicine everyday.

I have studied in school for almost 10 years now. In primary school, especially in grades 1 and 2, I was fooling around all the time, and I did not know how important learning is to me. When I began grade 4, I slowly realized some principles of life, and understood the importance of learning. When I was in grade 5, I wanted to strive for a better education, so I left my old school and transferred to another school to study.

This is me; a person who grew up amidst all of the difficulties; a person who is still in the process of learning new things; a person who is pushing through the ocean of knowledge.

  • My July 2018 Update

    [font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif] [/font] Dear Sponsor, Hello! I am very happy to have received your letter. I appreciate all your help after I joined Pei Zhi. Thank you for the interest and care you’ve shown my life and studies. In my very busy life as a student, I will work as hard as I can, face every day with determination, do well on my entrance examination to colleges, aim high, and follow my dreams out of this rural mountainous area (literally the area where this person lives). As life goes on, I will optimistically face every day, and try my best and closer to reaching my goals. In this family that is Pei Zhi, many kids like me from this mountainous area are all working very hard. With the help of people like you, we are growing by the day and your companionship warms our hearts. In the new year, I wish you good health and all the best. I’d just like to thank you again for taking the time to inquire about my school life and growth and for helping me. Wishing you good...
