Collected in partnership with Perth Festival and The Empathy Museum, A Mile in My Shoes is an extraordinary collection of stories that give us a glimpse into the lives of Western Australians from all walks of life.

At a young age, Evelyn Rivera was exposed to the horrors of the El Salvador civil war. She reflects on what it was like growing up in an environment where she would climb trees and see people being killed across the road, and what it was like adapting to her new home in Australia.
