“My aunt used to call me a wild child. Then the war started and she didn’t call me a wild child anymore. We came to this country for safety. Everything was strange. The people were strange. The food was strange. The animals and plants were strange. Even the wind felt strange – and no one talked like me. When I left the house it felt like standing under a waterfall of strange words.”
