Stories of Syria is a collection of true first-person interviews with Syrian refugees who made it to the United States. The project focuses on dispelling the myths and stereotypes associated with the Syrian people, as well as the stigma surrounding refugees in general. Through personal stories and direct-to-camera interaction, Stories of Syria creates a connection that humanizes the victims of this on-going crisis and instills a sense of empathy and understanding to a diverse and courageous people, all who have risked everything to get here.
