“My sister wanted to join the YPJ, but she was very young back then. I promised myself if she became eighteen and she still wanted to join them, I would organize a great party before she leaves. When she turned eighteen, she still wanted to go and I organized the party for her, we invited her close friends and my mother gave her a weapon to defend her land. I was truly proud of her, and in the same time it was very difficult to let her go. I visit here now and then and I’m really proud to see her becoming a great fighter that defends and protects Rojava and Kurdistan.”
