“[I]n diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” ~Maya Angelou This book is a product of the collaborative effort of 25 women from 15 different countries. These original illustrated stories seek to entertain readers of all ages with their unique perspectives, rooted in very different yet shared experiences of intercultural exchange. This creative art project includes storytelling, writing, reading, drawing, painting, editing, and layout work—all conducted in English as a second language of (almost) all of the project’s participants. Beyond that, moreover, “The Wish Tree” grew in the process of its making into an illustrated expression of friendship, comprehension, and appreciation for our diversities and multicultural understandings—as well as a medium of enthusiasm, optimism, and courage.
