- Which girls’ stories made the greatest impression on you? Why?
I would say the story of Yasmin had me thinking for a while. After suffering such obvious trauma, it amazes me that she manages to process the happening as something she concurred. It’s something I would expect from a girl at her age, the age where people are usually the most impressionable and insecure. For her to strive through such a thing and still come out of it while looking at herself as a “superhero” is admirable. Such genuine confidence and courage is the opposite of what most people are left with after such a horrific experience.
Yet it saddens me that a girl that young has to put on that type of armor, although it’s better than being paralyzed by the trauma, it shouldn’t be necessary. It shouldn’t happen to children, yet it still does.
