“We are a twin, our names are Ahmed and Mohammed. Not many people believe us when we say that we are a twin, and I don’t blame them to be honest, even we know that we don’t look alike that much. Even though we were born and grown together, but we are not together as much as other twins are. We have studied only until the third grade, we couldn’t stay in school due to bad financial situation, and now we are a shepherding for a gentleman in Kandinawa in exchange for a monthly salary. The sheep are not ours, but we treat them like they are, we are always watching them. We don’t have mobile phones, we don’t really think they are necessary and we don’t it to take our time. For 12-year old like us, this could be not a very suitable job, but there aren’t many jobs in the city, especially for our age”.
