I come from a long way from here.
I was a refugee in a camp
where people have a very difficult life.
My life was very confusing.
I didn’t know what to do.
I didn’t know who I wanted to become.
I didn’t even have a dream.
But now I’ve crossed the line
to where I can dream,
and I believe my dream
can come true.
