The refugee who became a Harvard graduate

Calais Light poster of Dina NayeriHear the first-hand story of a refugee who became a Harvard graduate: Calais Light’s first online Zoom event features Celebrity Refugee author, Dina Nayeri, reading live from her award-winning  book: The Ungrateful Refugee – What Immigrants Never Tell You.  Dina escaped to the US from Iran at eight years old with her mother and went on to earn a Masters from Harvard.

Calais Light is a small charity working to support refugees living in squalid conditions along the coast of Northern France. People have many pre-conceptions about refugees; the chance to hear directly from this author, as well as to ask her questions, may help in dispelling some myths.
