“I have never understood why some people are lucky enough to be born with the chances that I had, to have this path in life...while across the world, there is a woman just like me; with the same talents and the same desires, same work ethic and love for her family, who would most likely have a better career and write better speeches.
Only she sits in a refugee camp, and she has no voice.
She worries about what her children will eat, how to keep them safe, and if they’ll ever be allowed to return home.
I don’t understand why this is my life, and that is hers.
I don’t understand that, but I will do as my mother asked..
I will do the best I can with this life, to be of use.”
