Denison University second-year student Sara Abou Rashed was exposed to violence, war and hatred at a young age growing up in Syria.
The 19-year-old was faced with an identity crisis when she moved to the U.S. She now takes her story of immigration and identity to the stage for a one-woman show, “A Map of Myself: A 60-Minute, One-Woman Revolution on War, Immigration, Language, Home, History, and Everything in Between.”
Rashad's show was recently profiled on WOSU TV's Broad & High.
You can see Map of Myself, Saturday, November 10 at the Columbus Museum of Arts. Tickets here: https://www.columbusmuseum.org/?post_type=cma_event&p=26466.
Today on All Sides, we discuss how this medium is being used to talk and teach about immigration and identity.
