"My name is Panang. Panang Lama. I'm from Kathmandu. My parents are farmers. We are poor. They never went to school. It was like that in that time. I went to school when I was young. I Started to learn how to write and read... But... At the age of 12, I left school to help my family on the rice fields. Some of my friends were fortunate enough to learn the basics on a computer. Sometimes they show me what they have done at school. It makes me sad and happy at the same time. TIME PASSING... I am 16 years old now and I am still working with my parents and I help my mother with my young brothers and sisters. We are 6 children in the family. A very happy family. Lots of love. One day, I hope to be able to go back to school. I would like to be a teacher or a nurse."
