Such a lovely piece, Maryam. You and I had very different childhoods in terms of location and, to an extent, cirumstances, but the lessons our parents passed on to us are so similar. It gives me hope that all around the world parents are trying their best and passing on their best to the next generation. Let's hope we can do that too.

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
