"I was out of ideas, and I had no money on me. I must have been sitting there for ten minutes, feeling defeated, when the door behind me suddenly opened, and an old sleepy man with very broken English asked if I needed help."
During a solo backpacking trip through southeast Asia, Salma found herself alone in the streets of Vietnam, with no money and nowhere to sleep. She sat on the curb, afraid and unsure of what to do next when a stranger reached out.
