“We were in love for five years, and we couldn’t get married because back then people were often just getting married under the condition of giving back a wife to the opposite family. After this tradition had vanished, we were married. After living several years with our families, we moved to here. We have been through a lot of ups and downs. The best day of my life was my wedding day as well as the day my first child was born. I have had many difficult times as well, we were going through a rough time for a while and that lead to my sickness, and now I have physical problems. My advice for people is to try and be with your loved ones. The worst things I have seen have been genital mutilation in females, unfortunately it is tragic to experience and was the scariest thing any girl would face back then. It’s so traumatic that it affects our lives forever”.
