About this submission

Fatima, a twelve year old Syrian girl, tells her harrowing story of escape from war as she tries to rebuild her life and pursue her dreams of music and school. As she deals with PTSD and struggles with becoming a young woman in a refugee camp, Fatima illustrates the compassionate bond of family, the only element holding millions of shattered lives together. According to the UNHCR, 50% of Syrian refugees are children.
