“I've seen enough to know that you can be a human with a mountain of resources and you can be a human with nothing, and you can be a monster either way.”
Clemantine Wamariya, The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After

“Nobody is who you think they are at first glance. We need to see beyond the projections we cast onto each other. Each of us is so much grander, more nuanced, and more extraordinary than anybody thinks, including ourselves.”
Clemantine Wamariya, The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After

“It's strange, how you go from being a person who is away from home to a person with no home at all. The place that is supposed to want you has pushed you out. No other place takes you in. You are unwanted, by everyone. You are a refugee.”
Clemantine Wamariya, The Girl Who Smiled Beads
