“I aspire to a world where everyone, everywhere lives a life of dignity and young people have a safe space to lead and drive positive change in their communities”.
In George's last episode as a Podcast host, he chats with Nhial Deng. Nhial has been a refugee for nearly half of his life. Nhial arrived at Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp in 2010, at only 11 years of age. Fleeing his village in Ethiopia after an armed militia attack, he walked hundreds of kilometres for days, alone and without family, to reach Kenya.
A large camp in Turkana County in northwestern Kenya, Kakuma is home to around 160,000 people. It was built in 1992 following conflict and unrest in Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia.

Today, Nhial heads the organisation Refugee Youth Peace Ambassadors, which aims to promote peace in Kakuma, and also delivers mentorship and empowerment activities for young people. Nhial also works to shift the narrative on refugee issues by amplifying the voices of other young people in the camp. He seeks to empower youth as the leaders of today that they are to make a difference.
George chats to Nhial as he waits in a hotel quarantine, before starting his studies in Journalism and International Studies at Huron University College in Canada.
