Seeing the dedication and hardwork his mother puts in despite having an amputated arm, teenager, Sisa Macedru began thinking about his future.

The 16-year-old student of Natabua High School wants to become a pilot to help his mother, Ana Naqelevuki, and his siblings.

They live in the Koroipita Model Town in Naikabula, Lautoka.

He is the youngest of four siblings and assists his mother daily around Lautoka City to sell pastries.

They sell coconut scones, custard pie and chocolate cake.

Sisa has been helping his mother, who has been living with an amputated arm since 2008, bake cakes and pies every morning to sell to the workers at the different business houses in the city.

“When I leave school, I want to become a pilot so I can help my family and also look after my mother.”

His mother, Ms Naqelevuki said she was grateful that Sisa took on the challenge to walk around the city area with her to sell the pastries.

“He is a great son. He also helps me in my garden to plant our vegetables,” she said.

The pies are sold at $1 each while the cakes are sold at $2.
