“I have studied Geography and graduated 6 years ago. I have been a lecturer for 4 years in the towns across the Penjwen border. Due to the bad roads, our towns are not accessible to constant movement so I have no choice but to stay. It is true that these towns are not easily available and lack some services and I, too, am away from my family, but when the people of the towns treat me with respect and see me as one of their own, I no longer feel my family’s absence. We have guests over or visit others most of the nights. Our time is spent really well in towns, life is simple and away from the crowds. I usually go to the mountains and go far from my house. I do not miss the chance that I have in the towns and enjoy the beauty and calmness of it all”.

“Everyone says my field of study is not good and doesn’t get me jobs, but I always say that I am one of those who studied the field they wanted, so I am very pleased with my field of study and even more pleased that I am a teacher, although I am not employed and only a lecturer. When I think of the love and respect that my students have for me and how they expect me to teach them something new, it makes me completely happy. When I teach and educate my students, I always tell them that what they have excess of should be love and to perceive everything with love”.
