“I had to escape to save my life, just like my students. At least I am an adult, while they are only small children.
One day, when our motherland is peaceful again, I want all my students to be able to read, write and think in their mother language.
I want them to believe they can be all they want to be, despite what they have witnessed.
I may not have a home anymore, but I can use my education to make a difference.
I want my students to know they can too.”
