این داستان به زبان انگلیسی نوشته شده است. از فارسی ترجمه نشده است.
I was born in Kabul Afghanistan in 1999. Born into a family of eight.
My family had to leave the country two months after my birth in Kabul, the Taliban had come into power. My father was a military man and my mother a teacher, this made it very dangerous for my family. We left the country to Pakistan, and then we went to Iran.
I returned to Afghanistan at the age of eight and wanted to study in one of the schools. I was very enthusiastic about music, thus I went to the music school. I was so excited when I came to the music school. Unfortunately there were no instruments so I had to start on the piano. Four years later the school was revived, new musical instruments were brought to the school. Even their names were not familiar to us.
One day, I was walking through the corridor, suddenly I heard this instrument that totally captivated me. I came closer and saw a professor had arrived from abroad to teach music. I went to her and asked if I could play this instrument too, she said yes. This is how I started oboe. After playing oboe, my life changed completely.
I recently also graduated from Kabul University with a degree in music. After my graduation from music school, the school offered me a position as a junior faculty member. I still work at the school. Music has become my life and I cannot imagine doing anything else for the rest of my life.
