“I have spent my entire life surrounded by nature, as farming is our family’s main occupation. When Spring and Summer arrive, I gather local produce from the high mountains and sell them on the main streets. The drivers passing by are usually interested in rhubarb and plums, so I make sure to offer them the highest quality products available. Harvesting rhubarb is particularly challenging, as it is not like other greens. It takes a lot of effort to locate and pick them, and I have fallen off those mountains numerous times and suffered injuries. However, since our livelihood depends on it, I always find the strength to climb back up again.”
