Short Film – Writing an essay “Whom I want to be”

This short film was created by School Club in Batken (Kyrgyzstan) as part of MAP Small Grant project (2022).

The aim of this short film is to build a relationship between young people, their parents, and teachers, in order to motivate young individuals to pursue a quality education. In the film, the students write an essay about who they want to be in the future. Asker wants to be a soldier to protect his country. Aikokul writes that she loves children and wants to be a teacher. Zhanybek wants to be an architect so that he can build big, beautiful houses in the country and make Kyrgyzstan a prosperous place. Maksuda wants to be a doctor to help people get healthy. At the same time, Azamat is thinking: “I don’t want to waste my time studying because I don’t think I will be able to earn much money after 5 years. After school I’ll go abroad to work and earn money – I don’t care how. I will get a lot of money and come back to build a big house and live a wonderful life.”
