The kids here are Liberian. The kids here don’t watch TV. The kids here know all the latest hip-hop hits. The kids here wear ‘slippers’, not flip-flops. The kids here are friendly. The kids here are noisy. The kids here have the best teeth. The kids here lie and manipulate. The kids here sing and dance like nothing else. The kids here prostitute themselves. The kids here are not at home. The kids here love to learn. The kids here are amazing. The kids here ask for you incessantly. The kids here are very polite. The kids here are very rude. The kids here need money. The kids here are pawns. The kids here run free. The kids here make jewellery. The kids here parent their younger siblings. The kids here carry things on their head. The kids here want everyone to go to church. The kids here get excited about the beach. The kids here are incredibly intelligent. The kids here are your shadow.

The kids here are kids.

  1. Hey laura! Love the cyan backdrop in your photos. Kids are def similar around the world…. I saw a video about tanzinia a few weeks ago to do with compassion. If possible I would love to get a copy to show ps jo geerling to give her an idea of the style of video im looking to do for our india video. Hope your studies are going well. Cheers big ears
