'Staying in a tent is better than sleeping outside, but not like having our house. The mud and flood took ours. It was loud and scary. I escaped with my parents and my 4 sisters and 2 brothers. Now our 2 cousins live in the tent with us, because my aunty did not escape. She went back to try to save some things for all of us, but a boulder hit the house as it slid down the mountain and it killed her. Now we are their family.
'It makes my mother cry if she talks about it. I don’t think I can go back to school now, there is no money for new uniform and books, but I want to, because you have to go to school to be a pilot. That’s all I want to be.
'I like looking up and watching the planes go along. There are people inside there! If I can be a pilot then I can make money and I can look after my family. Where do I want to go? The airport!'
