The middle daughter of seven in a 4th. generation Tamil family stuck in non-citizenship limbo in Myanmar, Josmin is the bread winner and de facto parent to the rest of the family as her father died long ago and her mother, 80 "over", is too infirm to help. She earns about $8usd a day selling eggs on the street near her home. That money goes to feed, clothe, house, educate, and all the rest to an extended family of 14. In all my travels I am constantly reminded each and every day of the massive, un-glamours, incomprehensibly difficult roll the vast majority of women all over the world face in every aspect of all their lives. A humble thank you.
