Profile

My name is Yunfang Liu and I am a middle school student. I live in Xibuhexiang, Lijiang, Yunnan, China. There are five people in my family and both of my parents are farmers. I have a younger brother and a younger sister. People might think that I have a happy family in spite of our poor economic condition. I used to believe that we can keep this happy life for ever until last September when my father was told by the doctor that he has serious lung disease. Since he has to be hospitalized, all the burdens were suddenly on my mother's shoulders. We have to not only support my father's medical treatments, but also pay the tuition of us. My two siblings go to the elementary school in the town so they have to live in a relative's house. Their spending is even higher than mine.

I think I am fortunate because I have a chance to study. For families like ours, it was impossible to get into a school years ago. I want to express my thankfulness to my country, to my parents and to society at large. I want every children who live in poverty can face the challenges and fulfill their dreams. We should work hard for those who helped us. I know my dream and future are beyond the mountains and I have to fly over them in order to achieve my goals.

Updates

  • December 2016 Update: Liu Yun Fang

    There has not been much change in the economic situation of the family. The leftover of my school fees mainly depends on my parents farming business, but most of the money goes to the medicine fee. Last semesters performance was not very stable, mainly due to my emotional stress, but I have been tweaking and changing my study methods.
