Just like for many, Zayan is nervous and sad about going to a new school. His mother, Alia, has a remarkable idea help ease his fears. They create a paper doll that he can carry in his pocket to remind him she is nearby, giving him the confidence to begin his first day of school without her in physical form but with her because she is not too far from his heart.
