JOURNEY

    • September 13, 2021 – Adelin shared his favorite song and what it means to him: “My favorite song is called “Carry On” by Fun: https://youtu.be/q7yCLn-O-Y0. It talks about how the past can’t control one’s present, but all we can do is carry on, guided by lessons from the past. The past gives us more lessons to help us in the hard situations we may face.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Adelin shared what resilience means to him: “For me, resilience is all about the ability to remain calm in the face of disaster. This ability comes from someone’s personality, their skills and strengths. So, resilience varies from person to person. It doesn’t mean that resilient people face less disasters or anxieties, but they simply face all of their difficulties with their own characters. Resilience is more about adapting easily to a change. It simply means dealing with challenges and still holding up by standing up for yourself and trying your level best to cope with the challenge.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Adelin said his biggest lesson from 2020 was: “Saving money is a crucial thing in our lives. Save first and other expenses come next.”

Adelin’S CIRCLE

BIO

Adelin was born in a big family of 9 members, 7 children and 2 parents. During his childhood, there were conflicts between his parents. The only income in their family was from his mother, who was a midwife until 2013 when she lost her job because of illness. School fees were a problem, as all of the children were still studying. So finishing secondary studies was difficult for Adelin and his siblings. When their father was still at home, he didn’t contribute to the family’s income, and then he left the family. Two years later, their mother died of diabetes. That same year, Adelin passed his national examination. The community he grew up in is one with many rich families, but they are not willing to help those who are in need. One of Adelin’s ambitions is to help the homeless children and those who are out of school as a result of family conflicts.

In university, Adelin is studying Architecture, his favorite subject from high school. This will help him to achieve his dreams of helping homeless people and others who are affected by poverty, especially orphans who do not have school fees and the ability to complete their studies. Adelin plans to work as hard as possible in his studies, so he will get job opportunities and earn income, which will help him solve those problems related to his ambitions. As an architect, Adelin will help homeless people and those whose houses are affected by disasters. He wants to be able to contribute as much as he can and generate ideas of how their houses can be built according to the location. Adelin also wants to train people from his community about construction and how to build modern houses. This would help those who are very poor to earn money and develop from their poverty. Moreover, Adelin will help his family by using both his studies and income to build their own house, because the one they live in was sold by the bank due to his father’s debt.

During his leisure time, Adelin enjoys playing volleyball and watching football matches. He also enjoys conducting research, both historical and scientific. While schools are closed, he spends time helping old people and others in his village by rebuilding their houses which were affected by disasters and those one who are affected by COVID-19.
