UPDATE - AUGUST 2018: “I am currently going to a summer program with my brother where they teach us a lot of things like cooking! The best trip I took was one with my mom to the mall. She gave us 60 lira to spend! I’m always thinking about how I want to learn how to play piano.”  - Maria

UPDATE - DECEMBER 2018: “School is going well, and I’m not having any problems! The best thing is that I found an old friend in my school. My brother Omar makes me laugh so much. Once he was drinking water and spilled it on himself, and he told me that was your fault! If I had a superpower, I would be able to read people’s minds.” - Maria

UPDATE - APRIL 2019: “To me, being strong is being smart. I’m really smart in math, and I want to learn how to play piano or any musical instrument. During the mid-winter break from school, we went out with my aunt and spent time with my mom. They’re my favorite people to go on trips with because they make us so happy! ” - Maria
