Nématou lives in Burkina Faso, in the city Ouagadougou. She is 15 years old.
Nématou sent me an amazing letter in French together with beautiful flowers she drew.
What is happiness?
Happiness is the achievement of something desired.
It’s also to live freely and in harmony with those around us, to live in a peaceful environment, to know how to forgive the mistakes of others and to forgive each other.
To see the people who love us always by our side.
You can also be happy when you achieve something good.
Chère Nématou, dear Nématou, thanks a lot for your letter! Merci beaucoup! ❤
It really moved me with how much love you write, and I like your description of happiness so much. I also think that happiness has a lot to do with a life full of freedom, harmony, peace and having our loved ones by our side. You are also right that life is much happier when we can forgive each other when we make mistakes. I hope that you will always have this beautiful view of happiness and life, and that you achieve the good things you desire. Big hug, Karina.
