For the first episode of our second season of Lantern, we sit down with Fadak Alfayadh, founder of ‘Meet Fadak’, a campaign sharing her story as a refugee to change the current narrative surrounding refugees. Together we discuss the effectiveness and challenges of personal storytelling for advocacy, her experience moving to Australia and advice on starting campaigns for social change.
“I don’t think we have the luxury of getting exhausted whether it be the refugee issue or other issues… there’s no time to panic or take a step back or to feel like it’s a defeated cause because it isn’t.”
