A 15-year-old Nigerian girl, Aisha Mustapha, has sparked a conversation that promotes peace in the northeastern part of Nigeria. Having grown up in northeast Nigeria, Mustapha who was separated from her family after an attack, recounted her story in powerful graphic novel.
Mustapha's words were illustrated by artist Simone Martin-Newberry, who said he wanted to paint a picture that reflected the candid experience of 15-year-old Mustapha, who was faced with hardship at a very young age.
In the illustrations, the young girl revealed how an attack at her home town separated her from her parents and siblings. It wasn't until years later that she reunited with her brother and mother by chance. Her experience thought her to be hopeful that the future will be better than the best.
