“Life and conditions here are very critical. After January’s hardships, we come to the mountainous regions in the summer. We stay here for two months because of our cattle as long as there is grass. The time we spend in the mountains is a very difficult time. We wake up early in the morning and start working, then we prepare our horses. Because the mountains are high, we use horses to go around. The village is one hour from the village. Later we milk the animals, all the shepherdesses know their own animals. We then put the milk in bottles and load them onto the horses and return to the village. We are busy until the evening with housework, we make yogurt, cheese, and oil butter. After we are done with those, I start preparing for my exams. I have graduated from lecturing, if I pass my exams, then I can start teaching as a lecturer.”
