A Tamakkan Special: Film Screening of "Lemonade" Dedra L. Stevenson

Dedra L. Stevenson
Film Director, Lemonade

Lemonade is a short documentary about home schooling an adult with Autism in the UAE, in spite of the lack of services or support.  It’s one family’s inspiring story of how they made the best of a bad situation and made their adult son, Ibrahim, very happy and productive.  All people who suffer from mental disabilities should enjoy a happy and productive life which gives them a sense of purpose and belonging, and Ibrahim is a perfect example of how life can hand you lemons, but you can find the determination to turn it into Lemonade.

Dedra L. Stevenson is an American born Emirati author and public speaker. Her trilogy, The Hakima’s Tale, is a fantasy fiction story set in Emirati culture and based on the lore of the region. Ms. Stevenson also conducts a vast number of writing workshops throughout the region, inspiring the writers of tomorrow.  She lives in Sharjah with her husband and four children, and is an advocate for spreading Autism Awareness throughout the region.
