Talk by Hamedaa Hassaini – My journey from Afghanistan to the UK

19th June 2019


Lord Ashcroft Building LAB107, ARU, East Road, CB1 1PT

ARU alumna Hamedaa Hassaini shares the story of her journey from Afghanistan to the UK as a 13-year old refugee; the challenges of culture shock, religious differences and inability to read or speak English; and the changes she has come across throughout her life – from weaving carpets to practicing law.

This is not just Hameeda’s story but it is the story of many more refugees like her.
