“We Are Here Alone”: The Hiring Decision in the Struggle for Family Resettlement

Hello, my name is Thuy Tran. I am 8 years old and after the holidays, I will go to the third grade of primary school. I have an older brother. His name is Boa Tran and he is 12 years old. I was born in the Czech Republic, here in a town close to the border with Poland. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor. I know I have to learn a lot to become one so I do my best at school. I like playing piano and I am very good at gymnastics, skiing and ice skating.
