“My life may be different from many other lives on this merciless planet. I have been trying to reach my goals ever since I was a kid, and every day I see my goals and dreams get destroyed. Nevertheless, I haven’t stopped dreaming, and I hope that one day of them come true. After graduating high school, I didn’t get the grades I wanted, and so I left school, even though it was always my dream to have a degree and work. As I grew up, I understood that education and degrees have no value in this place. I loved photography, but I couldn’t work despite having many goals because in this country families are the worst enemy of their children’s dreams, especially when you are a girl. I now do sewing for work with my sister. I hope one day I can develop this work and it allows me to reach my other goals. Life hasn’t stopped, so we shouldn’t stop either and we should always try to make our dreams come true”.
