Peshawar, also known as the city of flowers, has many beautiful places and people. People from Peshawar are referred to as Pashtuns, Puktoons, or Pathans and they speak Pashto. I was able to visit my city after 16 years and it was an unforgettable experience. Being surrounded by family, I created some of my favorite memories there. One of my favorite memories was chasing chickens with my cousins, playing pat patonay and cricket. I tried new snacks and food that were delicious. I was able to learn more about my culture and family and as a person, I’ve grown since. I spent a month over there and leaving everyone was one of the hardest things to do because it felt like home. I miss my city and family every day and can't wait to go back home one day.
