“The most difficult time in my life was when I was 14 and my brother went to South of Kurdistan, my parents encouraged him to leave due to the war that was happening in our city. We were in a really bad state the day before he left. He was our protector. We were used to him being around us at all times, and come to school with us, and play with us. He was our only protector in difficult times. One evening my mother packed his stuff, and the next day early in the morning we took him to the boarder and said goodbye, it was the most difficult time of my life. A year has passed, and even though we are constantly communicating through social media, we are yet to get used to him being away. I hope my brother returns, and all other people who have migrated return to their families”.
