Last quote by Hafizah Geter

The very act of speaking up in a world that tries to silence you – especially when you're coming from a marginalized identity – can actually have life or death consequences. Often, people think that for an immigrant, the whole thing is just this big gift that you're receiving. Of course when you're leaving a place for a better life it's a gift, but it becomes such a big cost to the person that's leaving.feedback
