Raised by a single mother during the war, Beatrice suffered a difficult childhood. Her father and mother divorced before Beatrice was born, and did not receive any support from her father. With only a mother’s small income, at the age of ten Beatrice and her siblings set out to look for work in gardens, and fetch water for people to earn a wage and help their mother. Today she feels at ease, and thankful that she and her children have access to health care and consistent meals.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE

LOVE DEFINED
“Love is kind and does not segregate irrespective of color, and whatever part of the world one comes from.”

Hi Anek Beatrice.
Today I got the hat that you did.
I chose blue because I live in Venice, in Italy, and I will use it to get out by boat. And the hat has the same blue of my boat.
Here we use go sailing in spare time, because we have a beautiful lagoon, full of islands and history.
I'll think of you when I wear it, and I hope that the beauty that I see with my eyes while browsing can get to you.

I hope that your dreams for the future come true soon.
and who knows. maybe one day you and your children will come to Venice to see with your eyes this magic city and think a little bit of me.

Good luck and thank you very much.
