BAY: My Story of Hope
I joined Starfish Project with my older sister Ling. We were working together in the same brothel when the outreach team began visiting us. We looked forward to their visits every week. They shared snacks and photos of their families with us and we shared stories and dried roast meats from our hometown with them. We quickly became friends and were excited about the opportunity to work with them together at Starfish Project.
It was a scary decision to leave our old lives behind but the trust we had built with the outreach team made it easier. I love working with them everyday now.
What has touched me the most is the atmosphere of the office. It is delightful! It’s so relaxing, and everyone is so kind and encouraging here. I enjoy working here very much!
Currently I am taking English, computer, and math classes. However, English class is definitely my favorite course! My teachers are all very patient and loving. They always give me feedback and support when they see I am struggling with something, and they are quick to help me continue to improve.
At Starfish Project, I am achieving important goals I have for my life. That makes me incredibly happy. I feel so fortunate!
