"I know my father and mother's discomfort, because I have experienced it, I have been living independently since I was 6 years old because of orphanage I fulfill my daily needs, to be able to continue my studies, to continue my study at ITB must work as a foreman in a printing office in Kebayoran area, Jakarta, "Rizal said to the residents who are very enthusiastic about listening.
