It’s as if all the wounds I had when I arrived are gone, as if they no longer hurt. Now I look towards the future and look forward to living it.
At ‘Coffee Life’ I have been able to fulfill my dream of coming to Spain and working in a coffee shop. This is what I was promised before I left my country.
In these months at Casa Refugio I have gained confidence, self-confidence and I have come to trust people once again, as I did before.
