Interview With Young Activist Lily

Interview With Young Activist Lily

Latest podcast alert! When second-generation diasporas join student societies, it presents a great example of how youth can develop skills, create networks and most importantly advocate for their beliefs and their home country’s issues.

We have Lily, a young activist with a bright future, who is in discussion with Bara’ah Dalati, our technical lead for Syria. One of the keystones of our switchboard project is intergenerational learning and here it is in practice. Lily is also a volunteer with one of partners in the switchboard project, SCAN UK (The Syrian Charities and Associations Network).

We try to focus on the capabilities of the students in the Syrian Society and  try to shed light on current and recent events after 2011 but not limited to that.
[We are] Bringing a Syrian voice to the SOAS campus so people don’t forget Syria and what is happening in the country.
