I was new in an after-school program because in my school I wasn’t in the after school program they had. On the first day people started staring at me awkwardly and weirdly like they wanted to ask things. I was getting confused why they were looking at me nervously like that. When class was over, they came up to me and said, “Are you Hindu!?” or, “Hi girl, why don’t you wear the red dot?” These questions made me feel like some people didn’t know what religion is. They were all so curious. One thing I don’t like is that there is a war between Hindus and Muslims. I wish I knew why. I’ve heard so many people got injured. I don’t feel like answering their questions and just ignored them. They didn’t ask again. That was the day I quit gymnastics.
