Netherlands, 2015: Arousig, 16, from the Syrian Arab Republic, takes a ‘selfie’ with her family at the Asylum Seeking Centre in Heerlen. “When I look at this picture of me and my family, I really hope that we will soon have a place of our own,” she says. “I also hope Syria will become safe again. My father has grown grey hair … because he cannot see his brother. He is still in Syria.” Arousig was a participant in a UNICEF ‘EYE SEE’ photography workshop focusing on child rights.
