I discovered that women who go to college can be as active and smart as men. I realized that I was wrong about my opinion of what comfort means. Comfort to me now means a nice home, safety, and more education.

Crying at the Holocaust Museum, waterfalls in a green canyon in Arizona,
Cape Cod beaches, car accident, graduation
Green house in Minnesota, hot summer days in Washington DC,
Yellow cat, teaching English, the secret.
I had only one more week to be with my family. I was so upset that my dad was not talking to me, and at the same time, I was afraid of having him talk to me. The day I left my home for Kabul, my dad did not know, because I was afraid he would try to stop me.
When we arrived in Kabul, we found a two-room mud-brick house. To pay for the house and to find food, all my siblings and I started to work. I wove carpets for four years and forgot everything about studying or getting an education.
