Who is Debbie Almontaser?
August 15th, 2007
“I came to this country from Yemen, Arabia at the age of three. I remember it was a cold March night, and when I woke up the morning after we had arrived in upstate New York, I looked outside the window and saw, to my delight, that there was sugar everywhere, sugar covering the streets and all the trees. My father said “no, honey, it’s not sugar, it’s snow,” she wrote for The Gotham Gazette. “But not everything about America was as sweet. As I grew up, I faced great difficulty searching for my identity as an Arab-American.”By Oates Ritthichai on August 15, 2007, 12:11 pm
