My beloved daughter was asking me why I deployed so much efforts into becoming a lawyer and then chose to be a translator instead.
I replied that my diploma is for ever. I was free to become a lawyer any time in the future with my hard-won diploma.
Moreover, immersing myself into arduous studies made me focused entirely on law, fiscal law, international private law, financial law, banking law, company law, everything to be far from the abuse endured the years before.
I do not wish to bury my head in the sand to forget what happened. My 4 years of law studies have been a pause, the necessary step before rebuilding my life.
Today I can look what happened in the eye, without being taken over by sadness nor regrets.
