Immigrant stories are often told from an adult’s point of view. Few stories focus on children and their integration into the new communities they move to. When I sat down with Kanksha Buch, founder of the Jazbah Project, this idea was on my mind.
Back when I was growing up in Zimbabwe, we had a few Kanksha's in my class – students whose parents were expats. We looked at these children with envy because they’d had the opportunity to move to a new country and make lots of friends. Where I come from, the most interesting friend or visitor is the newest member of the community.
