Bint as Sahn (“Daughter of the Dish”)
Bint as Sahn (“Daughter of the Dish”) is a traditional Yemeni dessert consisting of light, flaky dough topped with sesame seeds and honey. I chose this because the main character is a 10 year old daughter who her parents are making her get married at young age. The name “ Daughter of the Dish” caught my attention because it’s like Nujood being the dish and many people will come and serve themselves over the dish and she has no control.
