Starting Over: A Refugees Journey to the US
This is a part in the series, “New American Stories” produced by Erika Lorentzsen. For a refugee, any place away from their camp is a welcome change of scenery. One woman is thankful that life is behind her.
Charni Chanal, who goes by Cc, is dressed in a baby blue sari. She’s elegant in her slight frame. She’s from Bhutan, considered one of the happiest countries in Asia, but she is a refugee. She plays me her favorite song and tells me about life back in the refugee camp.
