When Analisa was orphaned in Guatemala, and her step-brother stole her savings, her only option was to risk everything for what she hoped would be a better life.
Malala Yousafzai collected the stories in We Are Displaced to show that refugees are ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances.
She says that while many women and children flee wars and terrorism, sometimes the violence and oppression are within the community, or even the home. When Analisa's parents both died in Guatemala, and she found herself left in the care of a step-brother who exploited her, her only option was to risk everything for what she prayed would be a better life.
