Julina Paul

Phnom Penh, Cambodia


I am a girl
who grew up with grandmother.
Fear. Everyone knows fear.
But not all fears are the same.
Loss of parents.
Death, fear, robbery.
No one wants these things to happen.
You have to take note:
if it is going to happen,
then it happens.


Julina Paul (13)

comes from Cambodia. An orphan, she was brought up by her grandmother and now lives with her younger sister in Mariaschutz, a home run by the charity Caritas in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.
