The four of them live together with her uncle’s family, which means 7 people living in a less-than-nine-square-metre cabin. The cabin is made out of corrugated iron in a street corner, next to a public toilet. It’s dirty because it’s also her uncle’s motorbike repair shop. Her mother helps out at the shop and also sells drinks and cigarettes on the street.

After finish year 12, Huyen’s mother could not afford for her to continue education.
