Where did you run from?

Malakal, Upper Nile State, South Sudan.

Where do you plan to go?

I want to return to South Sudan since I have no other place in mind. I want the war to end and peace to return to my country since being in exile is not a pleasant experience.

What item do you wish you had taken with you?

Nothing.

What is your favourite item now?

My school certificates.

What makes this item very precious?

Because if my family can afford school fees next year, these documents will allow me to attend school again.
