These girls came up to me, totally unaware of how beautiful they were. I pointed at them and said "Konjo!", which means beautiful in Amharic. They looked at me like they had never heard that they were beautiful before. It broke my heart. But after they had heard me say it they lit up and they never tired of hearing me say "Konjo, Konjo!"
