Azim is sweet and quiet. When it was his turn to be sketched, he held perfectly still for the ten minutes or so it took to draw his likeness - a long time for a 6 year old boy. I think he only blinked when absolutely necessary. His dark eyes belied the violence he’s already seen. His father was killed by terrorists and his sisters were poisoned at school because they were girls. But his raised chin and quiet expression hold a confident and stubborn hope.
