My name is Peng Yingfu and I come from Hechi city in Guangxi Province. I am currently studying civil engineering at Guilin University of Technology.
I live in the mountains where nearly every household is living in poverty. So do our family. Thus, my way through school is full of difficulties and obstacles. Can you imagine the hardships a national player had to endure before becoming world champion? I can. I know exactly how they felt because from primary school to university, the misfortunes I had to bear won’t be lesser. People always talk about the nostalgia of happy childhood but definitely not mine. I don’t miss my childhood because it has been rough and miserable. A lot of my childhood memories involved shedding of tears.
Thankfully, there are a bunch of people that pay close attention to the poor and disadvantaged groups in China and is willing to lend a helping hand. They are Community Roots China (CRC). I remember when I was in high school, I couldn’t concentrate on college entrance exam preparation due to family issues. Fortunately, with teacher’s assistance, I got funding from CRC. This financial aid enable me to finish high school as well as to attend ideal university that I thought I couldn’t afford. I truly appreciate everything CRC has done for me.
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who have been a great help to me. Without you, I wouldn’t have received such a decent education. In order to live up to your love and expectations, I will strive for excellence in education, with the aim of becoming more useful and valuable to society one day.
