I arrived in Bangladesh in December 2017. My father died before August 25, 2017 and my mother was killed during the riots last August. I do not know who killed her, at that time it was chaos: there were arson, shooting, rape and so many horrible things happened all around.
I have an 18 year old brother and a 12 year old sister, but we got lost as we were fleeing to Bangladesh. I have been looking for them since then, through internet, CIC (Camp In Charge), announcement in the camp, through bulletin boards. I keep looking but I haven’t found anybody yet. Maybe they are still in Myanmar. I want to find them, I want to see them.
At the camp, I was accepted to live at Maji’s house (leader of the Rohingya Community).
My biggest concern is finding food, and also when I need to go somewhere, I do not have any money so I cannot ride a tuk tuk or buy anything.
When I was living in Myanmar, I went to school for only three years, it was between age 7 and 10. I would like to continue and learn English and Burmese but since my parents passed away I cannot really do that.
We should have the land where we belong back. I think we must be able to live freely and independently.
Although I miss Myanmar, I am still scared now and cannot return. If citizenship is guaranteed, I would like to return. In the meantime if I could study here before going home, it would be an asset for the future. I really want to learn.
