ABOUT THE DIRECTOR


Khaldiya, 18, is from Dara’a, Syria. She fled the civil war 3 years ago and now lives in Za’atari Refugee Camp in Jordan. This was her first time using a camera and making a film. She continues to make videos when she can, and would like to start initiatives in the camp that will help other girls express their stories – through media, a comedy troupe, and theater. She wants to use the power of storytelling to create change in her community, and hopes to pass on what she learns to younger girls in the camp.
