“Who am I?” is a question we ask ourselves as children (and even as adults). This shorts compilation shares stories of developing or accepting one’s own identity from people around the world: a boy with an egg for a head makes him feel fragile until…; a teen who wants to be judged by her jumpshot and not her body; and a boy asking frank questions about why women wear the hijab. These stories (and others) will expand the way you identify with the world around you.
