Goshan’s parents were Kurdish freedom fighters in Iraq during the rule of Saddam Hussein. They immigrated as political refugees to England, where Goshan was raised.

After graduating with a master’s degree, she gave up her life in England to return to the Kurdistan region in Iraq, where she is now a biology teacher. I met her there, last year. She told me she grew up feeling a sense of responsibility to help the development of her homeland after such a long period of war and unrest.

yaşamın aktif bir oyuncusuyuz

Posting this because unknown to you all i love AK’s with Folding stocks <3 If i ever went to war all I’d need is an AK w/a folding stock (or just a plain old wood Ak-47) & a G18 and I’ll be good to go! Plus the girls are cute ;)

Tanrım bence para biriktirip sana bir sopa alalım artık!
