Tigist is from an area called Angecha. Because she doesn’t speak Amharic all that well, we were only able to gather a few information about how she came to Addis and about her stay. She says she’s been in Addis for the past 2 years. She was first working for a relative but then had a fight with her and runaway. Then, strangers who found her on the street took her in and she’s been staying with them for some time. They were the ones who took her to the police. Tigist wants to go back home to her mother. She says she didn’t want to come here in the first place but wanted to respect her mother’s wishes.
