‘I want to win for my son’

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Re­al­ity up­date -

Ajay has raised her son Kai, who was di­ag­nosed with Asperger’s syn­drome as a baby, largely as a sin­gle mother, and she says he’s a big part of why she’s do­ing the show. “Kai’s been liv­ing with me un­til now, but he’s just re­turned to Aus­tralia to work,” Ajay says. “Be­cause we’re on a visa, he can’t legally work [in Amer­ica]. We need green cards. They cost about $12,000! What sort of mother has that in her back pocket?” She says the show has al­ready been a wel­come op­por­tu­nity to change Kai’s life. “The beau­ti­ful thing about this show is that it will en­able us to get a green card. It will al­low him to live here,” she says. “I’d be­come a res­i­dent and he as a de­pen­dent would be­come a res­i­dent and it would al­low him to work. Get­ting a job is a big thing for him!”

Kai has re­turned to Oz to work.
