A bit of my story? Actually I've been living here in London for nearly 20 years. I went back home to the new capital of South Sudan, Juba. I spent five years over there and it was one of my nightmare experiences.
I of course wanted to go and contribute to the nation building over there, so I went there and was so excited. I took everything.
I lived in one of the worst conditions ever, you won't believe it. My toilet was a bucket because I moved to a place where people are really struggling to make ends meet, to the extent where children would just go outside and 'do their needs'. I had a very painful experience in South Sudan and when the conflict and the crisis of 2013 took place I was still there... but I couldn't carry on so I had to come back.
The good news about me having that negative experience is that I really get to feel for the poor and I took it as a really spiritual experience, thinking 'maybe God wants me to see it so I can try and do something.' So I take it as a negative experience but in the meantime I think sometimes it is good to live in the condition of such people so that you can really know.
