My Story:

Hasti is a polite and talented girl. She lives with her mother. Her father became extremely addicted to illegal drugs some years ago; while heavily under the influence of drugs, he went to his wife’s uncle’s home in an altered state. While there, he underwent severe hallucinations and shot and killed one of the family’s children. After six years in prison, he was sentenced to death and executed. Currently, Hasti and her mother live in a single room in her uncle’s house. Their household supplies are worn and nearly unusable; the family has no source of income except for welfare and an extremely minimal amount of aid from a charity organization. Their income is currently insufficient to support Hasti and her mother; their critical condition renders Hasti in direct need of assistance in order to be able to continue her education.
