In this unique collaboration, Ewald worked with eighteen immigrant teenagers to create an alphabet defining their experiences in pictures and words. AMERICA BORDER CULTURE DREAMER presents Wendy and the students' poignant and powerful images along with their personal stories of change, hardship, and hope. Created in a collaboration with Al-­‐‑Bustan Seeds of Culture, this book casts a new light on the crucial, under-heard voices of teenage immigrants themselves, making a vital contribution to the timely national conversation about immigration in America.
