SEATTLE: Hiba Jameel is an Iraqi American who lived through the gulf war, she was 8 at the time. Like many other Iraqis, she survived the war with a scarred childhood. When Hiba got frightened by the sounds of the bombs, her family used to tell her to look out the window at the different colors as they resemble the Atari games she used to play. She used to try hard to swallow her tears, cover her ears and observe the different colors and lights moving in the dark sky and imagine her world as a big Atari game.
