My motherland, my heart: A collection of thoughts, feelings and emotions about Afghanistan, gathered from conversations with children of the Afghan diaspora — Fariba Ahmadi


This paper documents collective narrative practice with young Afghan people in Australia. The author met with a group of 12- to 14-year-olds and documented their responses to recent events in Afghanistan. The young people share how they have been affected, how they have been coping, where they are finding support and their advice for others. The author invited responses to the young people’s testimonies, and these are also included.
