A personal narrative of my escape with my mother and siblings from South Sudan as refugees is presented. The narrative then chronicles the time in Egypt applying for refugee status and eventual resettlement in the United States. In the United States, resettlement began in Newark, New Jersey. I then document my move from Newark to San Diego, California to, eventually, New York City. In New York my life as a model, DJ, actress, and founder of Stand for Education is narrated.
Mari Malek expresses profound gratitude to Paul Ehrlich for his guidance in this project. His editing of my story, his suggestions, and his encouragement to keep me going all made my story the best that it could be. I have deep appreciation for his contributions.
