He wanted to take me and my two siblings from our home to go to school

I was so scared and fear rose in my throat

We drove off in the car...

Speech Bubble
We arrived at the school...
we were separated into different buildings, no time to say goodbye to my brothers
I told Sister Mary that my name was Irene Chouchie
Then she told me something I will never forget.....
We don't use names here
we use numbers
Your number is 759
I thought to myself, I am not a number
i was told to take a shower and the soap smelled terrible
I was taken to my room and given a uniform to put on
but the worst was yet to come....
They Cut My Hair!!!
back home, long hair meant pride and honor
we would only cut our hair when we where mourning
Now I felt like a part of me was dying
A few days later....
I was sitting at a hard wood table for breakfast
There was food Infront of me, and it looked like plaster that dad used to fix the house back home
I knew i had to eat it or i would have to eat it for lunch then dinner
So i started to eat, and hated every bite
