The story started few weeks into the summer, before I got the US. I met Kiran Gandhi at Bellagio Center where we were both taking part in two weeks residency under the theme of “youth as agents of transformational change” . I have recorded couple of verses in Arabic in her studio and we talked feminism.

Part of #16days is to talk to women during our road trip. Few hours before leaving the beautiful New Orleans, we met Sara Hernandez, 18 years old inspiring skater who wants to empower other girls into the male-dominated skateboarding.
