Hi. My name is Estere. Today is a cold day.

We live in a small town called Sirnak.
There are many different languages spoken here, like Arabic, Kurdish, Turkish, and more.
Sometimes, you can see that people have different religions in our small area.
That is why this area is very colorful and lively


This area is in southern Turkey.
We have cold, snowy winters and very hot, long, and dry summers here.
I am in the fifth grade at my school, but my mom and dad say that it is not important for me to finish
school.
They say, “Girls usually get married when they are twelve or thirteen years old.”
My mom was married when she was twelve.
Maybe this is the reason that she plays house with us.
