“I am the youngest of five children. My two brothers and two sisters are all in Indonesia. One of them is married and the others are still in school. I have never gone to school in Indonesia. That time that my mum left them in Indonesia, I was still a baby. It’s weird, because I have never met my family in Indonesia. I don’t feel anything about them being there. I don’t even miss my own brother because I have never met him since I was little.”
