Zelmay spends his summers working with his older brother and father at a brick-making factory. His father has worked at this factory for more than 15 years. All the money Zelmay makes goes to helping support his family.

What do you hope to do when you grow up?

Answer: "I want a seat [a desk job]!" I am going to school and I'll be a good student. I don't want to work here [in the factory]. I want to work in Jalalabad in an office with a computer."
