"I feel at home when I'm with my family because they understand me and I can tell them anything and that's why I chose a symbol of a shirt that everyone in my family owns. I also drew a plantain tree because it is famous in my country, Tanzania, and it is what most people like to eat." - Leila
"I feel at home when I'm seated with my whole family chilling and laughing together. I drew a banana plant to represent Uganda and a symbol of a group of people seated together which represents the unity I feel at home." - Neema
"I feel at home with my family because I can be myself and I don't worry about what they think of me. I drew a heart to represent love, kindness and happiness in my family. I drew a potato to represent my culture because it is popular in my country, Rwanda, and when it grows it gives us food." -Alliance
"I feel at home when I'm with my family and siblings because I feel safe and comfortable around them. I can share with them my happiness and sadness. My siblings mean a lot to me so I drew a face to represent how we all have the same forehead and a rose because it is our favorite flower. I also drew a kaffin corn and sorghum because it represents my country of Rwanda" - Clemance
