Scary - Halima's Story

My name’s Halima and I live in Richmond. I come to Collingwood Neighbourhood House sometimes – once or twice a week. I'm originally from Ethiopia. I've been in Melbourne for nearly 30 years.

Hoddle St is busy to drive where you want to go. I don’t use it often. I use a shortcut. There's too much traffic and the road is big, so I’m scared to enter sometimes. I’m scared of lots of cars and buses. I stick to the one side where I need to go. And still I’m scared.
