Snowy Joy

"Mummy are we Refugees?" asked my youngest, shortly after a sojourn abroad. My tween and teenage daughters became aware of the depth of emotional trauma children experience when it comes to Moving either from one country to another of separation of any kind. Based on their personal experiences they were curious as to how 'moving' impacts one's sense of space, identity, and culture.

More so, on hearing about children crossing dangerous channels, they questioned their own identity and how such profound changes were being processed, Often, I found myself constantly averting their attention from news channels to avoid further probing. Using writing as a tool for communication, I embarked on engaging in those difficult conversations by scripting Snowy Joy ( A Winter Tale of Refuge).
