As I don’t want to give anyone the wrong impression, I have to maintain my reputation for tardiness and post my “Friday” Feature Podcast on a Sunday. Life lesson: never commit yourself to cleverly titled days of the week podcasts on the internet.
Regardless of when this is going up, I am truly so privileged to share the voice of Alice, our legal expert at the Greek Forum of Refugees. Alice is one of the most committed, knowledgeable people I’ve met who works in this field. She is the person I turn to when I’m confronted with problems I don’t know how to solve (which happens every day)- when a refugee messages us on Facebook from Leros to ask how to reunite with his wife in Athens, when a refugee family comes into the office seeking shelter, when I have to explain to a curious reporter the Skype-for-asylum procedure- I always ask Alice, and she always knows the answer. Have a listen below to my brief but brilliant conversation with Alice, where she reminds us that “we could all one day become refugees.”
