I am a new flower in a tree

a unique red bird in a nest full of blue

birds. A fish out of water. I am the

school’s newborn. My school is a

new jungle in my head.

About the Project

There are millions of children affected by war, social collapse, and climate change now living in refugee camps, or dispersed in host countries far from their original homes. The work that appears here is a part of Stone Soup’s growing collection of creative expression by young people whose lives have been upended by such conflict throughout the world. To explore the entire collection, please visit the Stone Soup Refugee Project online: https://stonesoup.com/refugee-project/
