Eight young people from Burma, Aghanistan and the Sudan write about their journey to Aotearoa and coping with settling in. I especially liked the poetry and would like to share this verse with you:
I packed my bags throwing
My life into my suitcase
Not knowing where I was going.
Here I’m in windy wild Wellington.
A neglected human ~ Sonia Azizi
I was priviliged to meet the young authors and after reading this book it has given me a better understanding about our courageous refugee community. A great read.
