Duaa and her family moved to the United States when she was only two years old. When she was 12, her parents decided to move back to Sudan for a time so that she and her siblings could experience their native culture. For Duaa, experiencing both cultures has given her a greater appreciation and respect for cultural diversity.

This story was produced by Duaa Elnasri, 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.
