​Not So Happy Father’s Day

Photographs by Mark Lyndersay. My name is Ricardo Ali and I REAL miss my father on Father’s Day.

My nickname is Nosey. Because my nose big. And that stick now. But hopefully it will go. But now that I put it in the newspapers, it might last even longer.

I’m from Cunupia, from one of them area where everybody know everybody, from a real big family, counting my cousins and uncle, in the air-conditioning trade. But my family at home is just five of us. My dad passed away when I was about six. So is just my brother, two sisters, me and my mother. I’m 16 now. I’ll be 17 in November.

I went Cunupia Government Primary. And then I went ASJA Boys College. And then I leave out ASJA because of some family problems and I jump into the a/c thing. I accustomed, since primary school, to go with my cousins on job sites and thing. And I end up liking it. So, when that family problem come up, I decide to jump out school. It was before my daddy die that I went to earn, to help out my mother and sister and them.
