So We Became Refugees (2016) is a continuation of the refugee crisis projects. It takes place in the Elliniko camp in Athens, Greece, where Afghan refugees are trapped the past 6-7months.

In this body of work I am focusing on a young Afghan girl named Parisa,13 and her family's experience in the camp.
