The most interesting part of you is your own life-story. What ever it is you are trying to win, essaywise, things which happened with you, while you were in Iraq, why you moved, your journey there, adjusting to life in Yemen, were people accepting of you there? What about your relatives and friends who stayed back in Iraq? What did they experience?
While the American army occupied your land, fought against Iraqi men, children and women did not escape the consequences. You saw it all, or much of it. Later you heard what is happening in your country. What are the people thinking about their future? What is the future of education there?
Get to the center of this - and express the story. It should be an amazing one. No doubt about it !
