“Even crammed on an island with 40,000 other people, there was still daily life. Temples, schools, shops, and a post office were built to maintain a standard of living. Mom told me how she was popular with the guys and how they would do tasks for her like stand in line for food. According to her, guys competed for her attention because she was one of the most beautiful girls in the refugee camp. A girl has to do what a girl has to do to survive.” -- Jinny Ly
