Guest Speaker – Gulwali Passarlay
Gulwali is an advocate and writer who left Afghanistan at 12 years old to travel across land and sea, eventually reaching Britain after 10 countries and a year of travelling. Gulwali spoke to the sixth form and year 8 who were enthralled by his experiences on his journey and in his new life in the UK. We are extremely grateful to Harrogate District of Sanctuary for giving us the opportunity to hear Gulwali’s story.
If you are interested in Guwali’s journey, you can read some of the articles he has written online in The Guardian, watch his TedTalk on Youtube or read his book ‘The Lightless Sky’.
