The Refugee Journal
Letter from the editors
Welcome to the second edition of Refugee Journal. The last two months, have been extremely thriving and inspiring. As usual, our team of writers have been attending the weekly writing workshops in our studio in One Happy Family. Despite the difficulties they have dealt with in the passed, the battles they are fighting in the present and the struggles they will face in the future; our writers are determined to take part in every class.
They are resilient. But from where do they get the strength? A question we have asked ourselves numerous times. During a meeting one time, one of our students gave us the answer: ‘I believe a letter can change a nation. Writing empowers people. So in this case, empowers me.’
Let ’empowerment’ be the theme of this issue. This magazine features a wide range of subjects. From the power of music, to finding love in an inhumane existence, to starting a business in refugee camp Moria. But all with the same focus; taking back control in life. We hope you enjoy the second edition. We welcome new writers and new ideas from you, the reader, to expand and improve the ‘Refugee Journal’.
