I am made of riding motorcycles in the streets of Taiz, Yemen
and today, riding to school on e-bikes with my cousin.
and in Eid, my family and I all gather in my great great grandmother’s house and give all the little children money and candy.
I am made of growing up in a village on the mountains
I am made of the American Veterans Pier and seeing Manhattan lights in the dark.
I am made of “Don’t pay attention to what other people think about you” and “Always find friends that will help you in life.”
