My name is Suma. I think changing the way you think is the biggest essential for life change. I changed the way I think because of my two sons and one daughter. If anybody will ask them what their mother is doing they can tell them, “My mother has a job.” Every woman needs to have a job. Otherwise nobody values them. My sons are staying at Basha’s day care. They love to play with the toys and now they have friends there. They love day care food. I feel proud when I think that I have a job. I like to sew the kantha pieces to make Christmas stockings. It’s very easy. If anyone wants to learn from me how to sew kantha blankets, I think I can help them. At Basha everyone is very helpful. I love to work here.
