I’ve gotten the chance to talk to a lot of refugees and asylum seekers so far in Athens, and I am stoked for the opportunity to help share their stories, but the people I’ve been talking to the most over the past couple of weeks are the incredible people who work at the Greek Forum of Refugees, and I think it’s really important to hear from those closest to the refugee and asylum seeker communities. Sooooooo I decided to make a little weekly podcast- my Friday Feature! This week I chat with the wonderful Elena Iusso, who has the patience of an angel (I ask a lot of questions at work…) and can sell Athens attractions like a pro (she has me wandering around the “enchanting alleys” of the anarchist neighborhood trying to copy her photos). So please press play and hear some behind-the-scenes insights about how she shows “compassion, in the Greek sense of the word” in her fun and challenging job at the GFR!
