"I joined this IWB project because I find the current refugee crisis and the issue as a whole incredibly interesting and important. I also felt that the way refugees are treated in many places is scary and inhumane, and that we need to work against this in any possible way."

"I have always taken a keen interest in human rights, and have found myself defending the rights of refugees regularly in my everyday life. I believe that the concept of refugees has landed on the wrong side of the ever-influencing media, and so I have joined IWB to bring attention to the side less heard."
