I want to tell you about a desired dream from my childhood. When I was about 10 years old, I asked my parents for a Barbie doll. At that time in my country, a Barbie doll was something incredible because there was a war. I might as well have been asking for the moon! I finally understood the concept of "expensive" and "no money" but I asked anyway, although I didn't really hope. On the first of January in the morning, I received a treasured box. I eagerly opened it and couldn't believe my eyes. Inside there was a Barbie doll! I thought I was dreaming, and I started screaming hysterically. I was filled with an incredible happiness and thought this was an absolute miracle. After that, I fell in love with dreaming.
