We recently got a great assignment at Michigan Radio: interview an immigrant and tell their story in 2 minutes with just their voice (and no reporter voice narrating the story).
Thank you Linda Steinke for sharing your story with me. When she said the part about how she would have “died from the war, torture, or depression” had she stayed in Iran, I just was blown away. Listen to her story here.
And speaking with Linda, I was reminded of the awesome graphic novel & film, Persepolis, by Iranian writer, Marjane Satrapi. More on that here.
