Daughter of Tabish and Zeba.
“My father had enemies in our home country. A man shot him three or four times. It broke my father’s leg, but he escaped. He and my mother took me and my siblings on a journey. We had to leave our home. Every time we tried to cross the border the police caught us and sent us back. The last time we had to walk for seven hours without stopping to sleep. We had to get on a boat and we were on the water for five hours. It was so long. The boat stopped working but some people saved us and brought us to an island. My father is very sick and we don’t have any more money. I don’t know what will happen to us."
