I’m not going to lie, this was emotional. I was in two minds about whether to publish this, but I feel that these two people’s story needs to be told.
They are refugees, from Iran, and have an amazing story to tell. We didn’t get into too many details because I felt actually some of their experiences are probably too raw to talk about.
Long story short, they escaped Iran because of the activism that they were doing. What I find astounding as that they are two educated people. Who were successful in their own right having to leave a country they were both contributing to.
Needless to say it was a fascinating conversation, one which I have more questions and hopefully will get a chance to speak with them again.
