Week 2 Project
War brides from the Syrian refugee crisis- younger than ever before
- Who Wants to Read Your Book
Well, I picked this question because I personally would like to read about this topic, have read about this topic and carry a special place in my heart for these young girls. I think readers would be drawn more to this topic if it was about a specific person, whom the book could follow; someone for the readers to connect with on a personal level. I also think there would be a greater audience if the narrative of this specific person’s story was the backdrop of the book.
This is a controversial subject, and if I choose to write about these young war brides, I would like to try to keep it less religious and more of a humanitarian crisis. I would want the readers to know it is not an attack on a religion, but rather a view into one of the many hurdles refugees are facing. The personal choices they have to make to keep their families alive. However, I am aware that religion does play a role; I just do not know how far I would want to dabble into that.
- Why You Are the Best Person to Write This Book
As for the answer to this question. Wow. Am I the best person to write this book? I want to be. My passion for these young brides would have me flying over and saving each and every one of them if I could. Beyond my passion, I have also read many books on the lives of Saudi Arabian wives, and the course they each take to the aisle. The most challenging part of this topic is going to be the in-depth research, so that I am educated not only enough, but top quality on each side of the spectrum. I believe finding people to interview will be somewhat difficult, but have already been in contact with a photojournalist at CNN to see if I can interview her. I need factual stories, real names, places, and times. I want to help educate the public in this crisis, and somehow, maybe someday, my words will help at least one young girl.
