As part of the #HubChallenge2020, I read We Are Displaced by Malala Yousafzai. In it, she shares her own story of being an Internally Displaced Person, and then shares the personal stories of other girls she met visiting refugee camps and cities around the world. It is a powerful book and avoids the trap of telling one story. These girls are from different backgrounds, with different reasons for displacement and different outcomes. The numbers of refugees around the world is staggering, but like all large numbers, it is difficult to truly grasp. This book helps make that number personal and builds empathy for the individuals experiencing displacement.
