My favorite singer is Michael Jackson. He’s my idol. I love “Man in the Mirror”.

I also like R&B, Hip Hop and Rock.

What is your name?

Hi. My name is Sezim. I go to Secondary School Number 68.

Where do you live?

I live in Bishkek. And I love my city and my country. I’m proud of myself that I can study in this school. I love studying technology here.

Do you like going to school?

I love my school. We prepare for our future here.

What do you think are the big, global problems?

Life in African countries is very hard: they don’t have enough water resources. There’s always war and violence.

And that’s why you should always be careful there. But people there try to live their lives too.

We should be proud of living in our beautiful country.

What makes you happy?

I love my life. And I’m happy that I’m alive, and live in this world.
