On the 25th of September 2010, my mother was kidnapped at gunpoint in front of me and my 3 younger siblings. I stopped being a child that day as I had to gather us all to safety. I was the only one who knew how much danger we were in.

I was the only one who knew how much danger we were in. 

My father was not in the country when this happened, he arrived on the 3rd day. We barely saw him when he returned. My aunt didn’t want to shock us with any news so my sisters and I were not filled in on the progress of finding my mother.

we couldn't pay the ransom

The culprits asked for a very large sum of money. If you can believe it, we had to try negotiating for my mothers’ life. I decided to create flyers inspired by my original design to help find my mother and promote the story.

The initial experimentation was very successful so I decided to go back to sewing on paper...

We don’t know where we'll be in a week or in a month. 
We do what we want for as long as we want, always trying out new experiences.

Using a sewing machine and colorful thread, I sewed on the words to paper.

“I enjoyed every minute of this experimentation, it took me an hour to make ach flyer.
