"At the House of Peace I am surrounded by wonderful women from all over the world. They have suffered so much, yet still, they love life and care for each other"

At the House of Peace, I learned skills that are not part of my culture.

I discovered that people from other parts of the world do things differently, and sometimes even better than me. 

I am happy.
