Across a number of spreads in this pop-up book, I documented a memorable event from my childhood – that of the destruction of US Twin Towers on Sept 11, 2001. Although a young child, I recall the moment I learned of the tragedy, as I sat at home watching cartoon TV. That day, the news streamed constantly and clearly. Although I was on the other side of the world in Doha, I saw the victims, witnesses and survivors. I saw the mayhem and chaos that ensued. And I learnt new words from this experience, including “terrorism”, a word which has become synonymous with Muslims from the Middle East, but does not define us.
