We meet Ahmad Al Rashid at National Conference 2017
Wednesday 26-04-2017 - 16:52
Following his keynote speech at NUS National Conference 2017 in Brighton, we caught up with Ahmad Al Rashid, a campaigner from Aleppo who contributed to the award-winning film ‘Exodus: Our Journey To Europe’. He sought asylum in the UK so his wife and young daughters - one of whom he had never met - could join him and live a life safe from conflict back home in Syria. Ahmed spent two months trying to reach the UK and documented his time spent in the back of a lorry whilst being smuggled into the country.
