Ugh why are they making us wear a veil I don't like it
Its obligatory you must wear it, do you want to go to prison! I didn't think so
Ugh ya... hi I'm Marji and sure I'd free t hang
Your from Iran right, so you've seen like death. cool you should come hang my friends and I they would love to hear about it
Don't come back, this country wasn't made for you go live your life
I just don't understand why we can't dress more reformed but still practice Judaism
A rule is placed that girls must wear a veil to cover their hair. If they do not follow this rule they could face jail. If this rule was not a thing she might not have become such a rebel later on in her life. She also might not feel as repressed.
We can't risk society thinking less of us
Marji is at school and has not made an close friends, and she meets a group of punk kids and they become friends. They help Marji feel more welcomed. Marji become more cultured and finds who and what she likes. If this had not happened she would not try new things and pretend to be something she isn't.
I've never tried but i'd love to learn
Hi I'm Alex, are you into film or photography?
Marji is all grown up and leaves Iran for good. he dad encourages her to go allowing her to be a free woman and to let her start her journey. If this did not happen she would be trapped in Iran unable to let her true self show.
I am going to miss you so much, please be safe Taylor
I'm so excited to be leaving and starting my new life!!!
Being told I can't show skin and to dress more conservative made me want to experience it even more later in life. If this event had not occurred I would be looked at as more of societies "normal" in the Jewish community that I was raised in. Both Marji and I experience getting a dress code because of our religions.
When I became friends with Alex, he showed me my new passion for art and I found something I now love. If I had not met Alex I would have most likely followed the crowd and tried to fit into a group that wasn't for me. Marji and I both find a so called "different" group of friends that help us find who we want to be.
This is going to be my graduation and how I am headed to college after, and I am very excited to be leaving in a few months though I know my mom is sad and worried. This moment is important because it will finally allow me to live on my own and learn for myself. If this event would not occur I would feel trapped in Indiana unable to grow. Both of us leave our family and familiar environment to better our self.
