“I want to go to school and get an education. I want to have a better life.”
We are many romani here, it is a village only with Roma people.
I don’t have a job as most people who live here do so basically I live out of what the state is giving me which is not that much, I need more money.
I barely went to school so I can’t really read or write.
I would like now to go to school and get an education. I have heard about this program `Second Chance´, where you can get a degree even at a later stage in your life, I want that for myself.
I really don’t understand what discrimination means but when I go to town in Targu Mures and I have to solve a problem there with Romanians I always solve it, so they help me.
If I go to the doctor they help me, if I go to City Hall or anywhere else they help me.
I am proud to be a gypsy as all other gypsies. We are proud people. I am Hungarian but I speak Romanian as well because I live in Romania.
I want more for my people from the Romanian government. I want to have a better life.”
