“I was six when I came to the Netherlands. My mother is a national, and my father from El Salvador. They had met at a kibbutz in Israel. I was born at the start of the civil war. My father is a doctor and has seen some of the most horrific things in his line of work. My sister is eighteen months younger than me and seriously handicapped. This was one of the reasons my parents decided to move to Holland. Medical care is much better here.
