I want to remember how I was

“I’m not sure I can allow you to take a picture of me. Because when I look at pictures, I feel very bad. I’m an old fat woman! Beauty is not that important, but I want to remember me as how I used to be. To keep this image is so hard… Anyway, my everyday life? Well, I’ve been to forbidden countries. I was in Iran two days ago for example. I buy local products and handmade earrings. They are made by students who do that there and look, they are beautiful. They need money, and I sell the earrings here. They are making money, and they are really happy about it, you should see them! It’s good for me and it’s good for the customers. I feel useful.”
