1. How many years since you migrated, or since you became a migrant worker? What do you remember most about that first migration experience?
I remember being very homesick.
2. The migrant workers in our TAYO community are people of strength and generosity. Tell us about a time this 2022 where you saw strength or generosity in yourself or in a fellow migrant worker.
Well this year was really challenging because of Covid and my mother passed away and I was feeling sad. Thanks Team TAYO for the conversations and the advice.
3. Our TAYO community believes in the multiple talents and skills of our members. Tell us about talent or skill that you have, that you’d like others to know more about.
We learn about gratitude, communication to different workers from other country, and the happy and sad history that we share.
4. For the family members and loved ones that are still in your home country, what is your message for them as we end 2022 and start the new year 2023?
To my family I'm gonna miss you this year Christmas with you. But in a few months I'll be home for good.
This feature is one of the entries to our #WeAreMigrants Contest - in celebration of International Migrants Day 2022.
