Understanding Refugees: Sharifah's Story

In the fourth episode of Understanding Refugees, we want to get behind the rhetoric, headlines and politics surrounding the community, and hear a personal story to understand the experience of living as a refugee. So we speak to Sharifah Shakirah, founder of Rohingya Women Development Network Malaysia, who spent two decades here in Malaysia, before resettling in the US. We cover her journey, how she felt, and the unique challenges of being a stateless person throughout this process.
