Now, every morning when I open my eyes, I long to see my old room full of my things, my clothes all over the floor and my school prizes on the shelves.

When I stand in front of my window and look out, I see tall buildings, long roads full of vehicles moving in orderly lines, neat green hedges and lawns, and tidy pavements to walk on.

Why We Need Heroes (Whom We Don't Worship)

Holy Moses — the woman has a life. For the past two years I achieved more goals than I’ve ever done. I also faced many more struggles. I faced things most people never have to face, because I was aiming at doing things most people don’t. Whilst other people were out partying, I was trying to prevent someone from killing themselves on drugs, or getting a kid to overcome the difficulties they were facing after being subjected to mental and physical abuse.
