I am 17 years old and i was sent for slavery to brazil. i don't know why did my parents sell me. i as sold to brazil along with many other people mainly youth of our society. they told us that we are being sent for a very important task but they lied. we were stacked in the ship.there was no space to even turn our head in there. we were around 300 men in the bottom of the ship. we ate stale food and lived in difficult conditions. many of my fellow people died due to diseases but i was not a victim. we reached brazil and when we came out we were bound to each other with chains and were taken to a slave market in brazil. i was sold to a factory owner. they made me labor a lot and did not give enough food for energy. if i was slow, they bet me with hunters or cancelled my food. they did not pay us. i we demanded, we were made silent by violence.
