This paper tells the story of the teenager Ashina who, at the insistence of her American teacher mother, had to come to the U.S.A. from Saudi Arabia after her father was killed. Ashina adored her father who taught her the dependent role of women in the Arabian Islamic culture, which she did not question. Next, the author relates the problems faced by Ashina until she met a friend who taught her that in America women even have a choice about their religion and husbands. The paper concludes that Ashina learned to accept her new culture and even to be happy in her freedom to choose her own life.

From the Paper:

"Ashina was first forced into a home education. Her mother employed some tutors to help her learn things like mathematics, English, and geography. Her mother also made her wear bizarre garments that left not only her face but also her legs and arms exposed. She said that these outfits would help Ashina make friends. When she was considered to be ready, Ashina's mother decided to put her into a public school in order to prepare for university and a career.
"This was a difficult transition. Ashina would say nothing in her classes or to the other students."
