As interviewed by Caylee Rincon, March 16, 2018
"You can walk here to a certain distance you are tired you can sleep in a bush, and in the day you wake up and continue the journey and then when you are tired you can just sleep in a bush just like that."

Introductory Profile: About Kazinga Kisabi

Kazinga, my dad’s co-worker, was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He moved here in 2016. He lived in a refugee camp 16 years. He is 36 years old and works at landmark as a surveyor. He loves to teach teenagers because when he was in Congo the students would have to pay the teacher with cornmill in order to be taught. He misses his family very much and doesn’t get any opportunity to talk to them that much because the president cuts the service due to the exposure of information.

I interviewed him about why he came to America and how he walked all the way from Congo to Zambia to get away from the war. He also gives some examples of how they way we Americans live compared to the way his life went while he was in Congo. He also was states how they war is affecting people's health and many other ways it affects them personally.
