Kinda (pronounced: Kin-da) explains her portrait (translated from Arabic by Natasha Hanna):
Kinda: Okay, I drew here that we are crying a lot and we are really sad, cause we are living under the occupation and we need freedom and peace. At the same time, I love to swim and play futbol. In the future I wish to become an engineer, teach swimming, also I wish that Palestine become a happy country and me as well.
Katie: imagine you are talking with a friend who lives far away. What is something you would like them to know about living Bethlehem?
Kinda: I would love to say that Palestine is really a very beautiful country although we are under occupation, but Palestine is the most beautiful country.
Katie: What’s one of your fears? Something you’re afraid of?
Kinda: I’m afraid that one day the Israeli soldiers will take one of my family members, because I do not likeand I cannot live without my family.
Katie: And, what’s one of your dreams?
Kinda: To become an engineer.
