In the big, busy world where everything moves so fast, I’ve got this deep feeling inside me. It’s like a wish to connect with where I come from, to find a place that feels like it belongs to me. I want to go back to my mom’s village, where things are calmer and life is about nature and green spaces.

My big dream isn’t just about having lots of money. It’s about having enough to buy some land in the village where my mom grew up. She grew up in the Eastern side of the Congo (Bukavu). I want to create something there, a home, a place where I can feel like I belong and be close to my family’s history. I totally understand that there would be challenges with wanting to start a home in a war stricken area like the east of Congo, but I know that there are some people who live in the safer side of Bukavu (in the mainlands).

So, picture this: a cozy home where laughter fills every corner, surrounded by fields of colourful veggies that I’ve grown. It’s not just about planting crops; it’s about being connected to the land and the people around me. I want to make a home that feels like a warm hug, where I can breathe in the smell of the earth and enjoy the simple joy of growing my own food. It’s about honouring my family’s past while building something for the future.

This dream isn’t just about money. It’s about going back to where my family comes from, where my roots are. I want to create a place where I feel like I truly belong. And every step I take right now is getting me closer to making that dream come true.
