My name is Xheraldina Abrashi. I am 15 years old and in the 10th grade.
During the wartime my family and I were staying at our house, but the Serbians destroyed it. Then we stayed at our uncle’s house. At that time I was 4 years old and I can still remember the views and noises that I heard. Anyway, now I’m very happy and I have a good life, trying to forget things that happened before.
When I was 11 one of my cousins told me about this organization and the work they do. I was interested to be a part of it. First, some teenage volunteers started to teach me and others a lot of songs and instruments. Then when I finished the 8th grade, I became a volunteer too. SMF means a lot to me, because I’ve met a lot of new friends and it’s a great activity for me to be part of. This program is very good and helpful for the kids. They can forget bad moments through the music, trying to have a good time with others. I like to be a volunteer and teach the children. For the future, I’m going to continue being a volunteer, study, get a good job and have a family.
