My name is Khafidun, and I am from Semarang. I currently live in Kampung Bali Daan Mogot which is in West Jakarta. I have two older brothers and a younger sister but only live with my father and sister. This is because both my brothers are already married and also because my mother sadly died in 2007. Now my father works as a construction worker in the Blok- M area.
Every single day, I always work in my neighborhood because my family is short on hands. When I have free time however, I like to play soccer because I think that fitness is important. I would also like to join a small catering business across from my house to help my family even more because my dad is often away and my mom is not here anymore. When I grow up, the only thing I want to do is to make sure that I take care of my parents and make them happy.
Before I enrolled in Rumah Belajar, I have dropped out of a school in the Slipi area. The reason why I had to drop out is because my parents could not afford the payments. Because of that, I worked very hard to get money so I can enroll in a different school. I think school is very important because I need to gain knowledge so I can help my parents later when I grow up. All I want from life is to ensure both mine and my parent’s happiness.
