Bebakhshid revolves around intimate identity intersections of being Iranian, an immigrant, and a woman. Mosall touches everyday banalities as well as challenges, exploring familial relationships, as well as chosen social environments. Her work is social commentary on the treatment and experience of Middle Easterners, as well as a focussed view of realities of its youth?not just challenges, but the romantic and mundane experiences of the everyday. Instead of being separated into parts, Bebakhshid transverses more intimate accounts, storylines, and snippets, weaving narrative poetry throughout, to foreground the importance of community and relationships.
