Tala

As a young woman of Middle Eastern descent, Tala is struggling to balance the lifestyle of her college-age peers with the traditional values of her parents. Her struggle is emblematic of the cultural challenges faced by many first and second generation immigrant youth.

Her story was produced by Paul Moret, a student at Middle Tennessee State University, as part of a collaboration between students in Middle East Studies and Nashville Public Television’s Storytellers series.
