EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FERESHTEH GANJAVI
ABOUT THE SERIES
"Lighting the Future: Refugee Conversations" is an interview series from Elena's Light that features speakers who are from different backgrounds but who all speak on a common theme: the refugee experience. Inspired by the refugee journey of our own founder and executive director, Fereshteh Ganjavi, the series aims to shed light on refugee experiences and narratives across an array of fields, from art to academia and more.
In our inaugural event, we spoke with artist Edel Rodriguez, and for the second event in the series, we spoke with Asma Rahimyar, the daughter of Afghan refugees and the first Rhodes Scholar from Southern Connecticut State University. You can watch both fascinating conversations below.
