To everything, there is a season, meaning nothing lasts forever. Soon my hard times would end. My friend called me saying, “You, Yonas! Someone wants to meet you near the school!” I ran quickly and when I arrived at the school, I was given a gift that made me laugh with joy—shoe shining tools! Before receiving this gift, I was a carrier and loaded/unloaded items from cars. I used to carry a bag of flour that was made from maize and potatoes. I carried any items I could.
After receiving my shoe shining tools, many things changed for me. Now I earn enough income to sustain a good life. I used my income to buy pens, books, pay house rent, and eat two meals per day thanks to my donor! My dream job is to be a driver. I am interested in driving a car to help people reach their destination as fast as possible.
