How poetry helps this young Afghan refugee 'empty' her pains and share her dreams

PBS, 12 Oct 2021
October 11 is the International Day of the Girl. Tonight, we hear from one girl, a young Afghan poet, who left her country a few years ago with her family for security reasons. Aryan Ashory now lives in a refugee settlement in Germany, and shared her thoughts and writing with the NewsHour's Student Reporting Lab as part of our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
