A MILE IN MY SHOES: EVELYN RIVERA

At a young age, Evelyn Rivera was exposed to the horrors of the El Salvador civil war. She reflects on what it was like growing up in an environment where she could climb trees and see people being killed across the road, and what it was like adapting to her new home in Australia. 

This story was collected by the Centre for Stories for the Empathy Museum's 'A Mile in my Shoes' installation as part of Perth International Arts Festival
