Vogue Arabia:  In a heartfelt letter, 17-year-old Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi tells the story of her arrest and 8 months in an Israeli prison – and the struggles she faces as a symbol of resistance. “I am a child of the Israeli occupation. It has always been there. My first real memory is of my father’s arrest in 2004 and visiting him in prison. At the time, I was 3 years old; he has since been arrested on two further occasions.
