To be a boy again!

To see 16-year-old Otto bent over a desk with his teacher going over class work, one would never guess the trauma that he has seen in his short life. He is tall, fairly confident and appears to be concerned about understanding the English lesson - like any other adolescent school boy. It is only when he lifts his head that you notice the scars on his face and the way his nose has a darker pigment than the rest of his skin.
