I have often wondered what it would be like to be forced from my home - not just my house, but my city... my province... my country. To have to leave, not because I want to, but because there is NO. OTHER. OPTION.
When it comes times to flee, how does one get from Democratic Republic of Congo to Hong Kong? Is that intentional, or does it "just happen" as seemingly insignificant choices are made until eventually one finds themselves 10,000km from where they began.
And now, life in a new country... a new language, a new culture, new people, no family. Where does one start? To find housing? To find work? Is it even possible to work as an asylum seeker? This is not a new home; this is just a place to stop-over. Because 98% of refugee claimants are refused. So where does one begin? How does one live?
