“I was in Istanbul on 15th of July 2016, I was among the people who participated in the movements against the government coup. And due to the violent attacks me and my friend got hurt. He passed away while I suffered severe burns. I spent 103 days in intensive care. After I got out of the hospital, people started looking at me like I’m a monster, like I was disgusting. I have been so sad and depressed that I have tried to commit suicide. I’m still alive but I mourn my friend who died everyday and I am trying to be happy but I’m crying on the inside.”
