Six months ago, just another 20-year-old sat in a restaurant, wondering how he was going to carve out his place in the world. As he spoke, his eyes filled with tears. Born in a location outside a small rural town, he was raised by his adored grandparents. His parents separated when he was small and ever since he can remember, his mother has lived in a faraway city, where she works as a maid for a wealthy family, looking after other people’s children instead of her own. He sees her twice every year, but they speak on the phone every second day without fail.
