I think that teens love to draw, and we want them to express their opinions through drawing comics, "- Anna Voronkova, the curator of international projects of the international festival of comics KomMissia said.

During the master class Asiya demonstrated how to tell stories in a graphic arts, how to keep the reader's attention.

"There is not any religious propaganda. Through the main character of comics – a young girl in hijab, the painter talks about Islam. For example, they say that Muslims do not like to listen to music because it is haram. In one comics story there is a little girl who gives money to a street musician. That is, Asiya wanted to show that all people are the same, but have different cultures and we don’t need to be afraid ", - A. Voronkov explained.
