UTA student, Ruba Akkad, writes poetry about a place close to her heart – Syria. Her father was born there, and her mother has Palestinian and Syrian heritage. Syrians have suffered terror and many have fled from the country. Akkad hopes to bring a different view of Syria through her poetry. She writes about Syria’s beauty.
