My name is Abla Buzzhari. I am eight years old. I have an older brother named Mutegi, who is fifteen years old. My mother is Olufemi, and my father is Karim. Mother is forty-six, father is fifty.
I was born in the town of Nahariyya, Israel. We moved to Canada to escape a terrifying war between tribes. Our tribe was accused of stealing sheep and cattle from the neighboring village, and so we are shunned. We moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
My brother and I are made fun of in our school because of our nationality, but Mutegi says it happens all over the world. I have no choice but to believe him.
