This chapter illustrates the story of Ulfat Riaz, who was born in Pakistan. Ulfat grew up in a place called Hanover Square, which was the most beautiful place on planet earth as far as she was concerned. When she was studying, she and her siblings had the same menu as the other kids, but allowances were made for the immigrant kids by not dishing up the meat for them. Ulfat got married when she was 20 years old and had three children. Her husband has always been an incredible support to her. Ulfat's daughter wears a hijab for spiritual enlightenment. Ulfat believes that she and her husband are blessed to have children in their life who have been able to find the right path, at such a young age, out of their own free will and choice.
