“I got married very young, we lived in Penjwen back then. I was always with my dad, who spent a lot of time farming and gardening. I also started to really love the work he would do. We would do all kinds of things in the fields, separating, herding, cutting trees, making tobacco and agricultural work. But my husband did not like that at all, he was doing free work. He also stayed in the mountains for a long while due to being a Peshmerga. When the town was captured before the uprisings, we came to the city and rented a house. I still have a lot of love for agriculture and gardens. My house is not big enough for a big garden, but I have turned this small section in front of my house into this small garden and I really enjoy it. I spend my days taking care of it.”
