Generation Crisis: young Syrians come of age in a decade of conflict 
After a decade of conflict, Western sanctions, a financial collapse in next-door Lebanon, and now, the global pandemic, life for young Syrians that have come of age during the war is far from normal.

Ghenwa, 21, a trainee flight attendant, sits in the backseat of her friend's car in Damascus, Syria, January 12, 2021. The freedom to travel was the main reason Ghenwa decided to train as an air hostess, having dropped out of university where she was studying architecture. "I'm Syrian and I can't travel at the moment except through this opportunity," said Ghenwa. "It's the only opportunity that makes me feel I can move faster... to feel the freedom of borders."

Jawad, who returned in 2019 to a Syria he barely recognised, after spending the war years in Dubai for safety, says music is his escape from the harsh realities of the country he came back to. "It was a big shock, everything without lights... no electricity but despite all the exhaustion and sadness on people's faces we have hope that everything will be fixed," he said.

Yara, 33, a lawyer by day and a music DJ by night, plays techno music at an after party at her friend's house in Damascus, Syria, November 16, 2020. Yara lives alone with her parents after three of her siblings left to live abroad. She used to have a busy life between her work, yoga, cooking and her passion for music but now she says she can only manage one task a day. "Putting fuel in my car for example after hours of waiting in line," she said. Yara preferred to stay in Syria throughout the conflict despite the dangers involved. "I didn't like the way other countries were treating Syrians, so I didn't want to lose the respect I have here, to get some pity from people who know nothing about us, even if that meant living my life in danger." Yara was near the Damascus courthouse when a suicide bombing took place in 2017. "It was a horrible experience... to see your colleagues' dead bodies around you and at the same time needing to help the injured and rush them to hospital."

Every time I try to explain to anyone about life in Syria, I feel they are giving me this strange look that I am exaggerating, or I am being a drama queen. I would like them to know about the people living in Syria and how much the Syrian people love life and how happiness suits them. Companionships are the only thing that is helping me to overcome this fatigue that's present in my life," said Roleen. "Life is all about relationships and friendships... I'm so happy that it (the music scene) is growing and growing.. that people are finally getting the idea of living their lives and enjoying it... Music is the language of love you can communicate without talking, you can just dance and let go and I'm happy that people are dancing and letting go instead of war and violence."
