I live with my mum, dad, two sisters and brother. Our nanny picks us up from school and cooks us dinner. My dad is a film lawyer in London and comes home on weekends. I want to attend Cambridge or oxford. I wish for a hot tub in our garden and a fishing boat. I worry about my granddad dying.
I speak Zulu and english. My father is a policeman and carries a gun. Our house has a wall around it with electrical wire. My wish is that everybody stop fighting with each other: at home, at school, and in the world. I am scared that one day i will be murdered.

I live with my mother and father. My older sister lives with my aunt in my hometown. I wish my whole family could be together. I worry about doing something wrong and upsetting my parents. I worry about hurting someone and my parents will have to pay for medical treatment.
