Palestinian singer Elyanna conquers the world with her talent. She looks at us from the cover of GQ magazine, and her tracks in Arabic can be heard far beyond Los Angeles, where she moved to at the age of 15.

As Elyanna says: “It’s never going to feel like home [here] and I know that. Home is Palestine and that’s it. I'm still learning, I'm still adjusting, but I came with a dream and my brain was like, ‘Ok, I want to make this happen and this is my goal.’”
