Paulina Stevens grew up in an insular Romani American family, destined to leave school, marry young, and become a fortuneteller. By 17, her fate was sealed — until she decided to leave it all behind.

Excellent story telling - really captures the humanity of the subjects
So well done and educational
Very well done and thought out perspective on the Romani culture. Told from multiple sides of the story. Thank you for producing and writing this! Very educational, I did not know much about the Romani people or practices and this was incredibly intriguing.
