“My passion for refugee and human rights lives in me; it is deep down in my heart, in my soul and my bones. Participating in the World Refugee Academy will not only be an honor, but it will teach me the tools I need to know in order to continue to educate people on refugee and human rights, to learn effective ways of fighting for those rights and to be able to help other refugees, who are just like me, find a place they can, too, call “home” again.”
