Mena is in third grade and has lived in Kabul, Afghanistan, her whole life. During that time, Afghanistan was ruled mainly by the Taliban regime. During the wars that affected Kabul, she and her family of five members would move to relatives' homes that were in safer areas.

What is your favorite holiday?

Answer: I like Na Rosa1 and Eid2. During Na Rosa we eat lots of cookies and sweets and play special games. Sometimes we go to the bazaar and ride the carousel.
