This was the haunting picture of an Afgan girl which appeared on the cover of the National Geographic June 1985. It is a great picture for use as an aid in creative writing.
This is as she is today and the story of the girl whose eyes have captivated the world since she appeared on that cover is told here . Good use can also be made of the above photo for discussion, creative writing, her story is good for reading/comprehension and finally comparisons between student writng and her true story can be made and discussed!!
