I live in Lebanon now, but my home was in Syria before a war started here. In Syria, I lived in a big, beautiful house. I played outside with my friends.
Two years ago, we had to leave Syria because soldiers were outside our house. They made my father pay them a lot of money. We went to Lebanon to be safe.
Now we live in a small house, and I share my room with my grandfather. My parents buy less food because it costs more than it used to in Syria. [School is hard because] the teachers in the school use English, not Arabic.
Last summer, my sisters and I went to summer camp [supported by MCC] where we could practice English, make crafts, play games and draw. I liked making crafts the best, but I also liked the games we played with water and sponges. My favourite subject in school is math and I want to be a doctor.
