Parvana and her mother and sister thought of different ideas of what they could do while their father was away until finally they all agreed on one thing...
Why me, Im going to be the only girl in Kabul pretending to be a boy.
Parvana why don'tyou pretend to be a boy so you can get us food and money from the Marketplace.
Parvana complained to her mother, saying she was going to be the only girl in Kabul that was pretending to be a boy. Until she realised she should be selfish in a time like this.
Why do I have to do everything for this family.
While Parvana was walking through the marketplace, she noticed some of the tea boys running through the marketplace and saw one of them that looked a lot like one of the girls from her school. As he was getting closer she realised it was her friend from school who is also a girl.
He looks like one of my old friends. Wait that is her,
I guess the same thing as you. My father was takenfrom our family and I am pretending to be a boy for money.
Hi Parvana, what are you doing here.
My father and brother were taken from us.
As Parvana was walking home from the Marketplace, she felt much happier knowing she wasn't alone and that there were a lot of other families who are going through the same thing. Shethought to her self, she shouldn't be so selfish and think about all the other families and teens struggling with issues in there life.
There are so many other teens that are struggling right now. I shouldn't be so selfish.
