Author: 20 years old female, Brazil
I was born in Brazil and lived there for almost 8 years before I came to Lebanon. My traumatic story would have to be all the times we got robbed and threatened to be killed by robbers who weren't as financially stable as we were back in the days. One day I clearly remember is the time where they forced my mom, brother, and I to sit in the bathroom and watch my dad being hit with the back of a gun. They then continued to steal all of our belongings (including phones, radio, jewelry, TV, even the bodyguard and police's private numbers that we had written on cards).
