A Young Syrian Woman of Valor


A Young Syrian Woman of Valor

César Chelala
Resilience is the capacity that allows some people to bounce back after being knocked down by life. Instead of becoming a victim of adversity, they find a way to come back from the ashes. Yusra Mardini, an 18-year-old Syrian woman swimmer, who just won the opening heat of the 100m butterfly at the Rio Olympic Games, is the perfect illustration of resilience.


Team Refugee.

With 62 million refugees in the world, only 4 million less than the population of the UK, it is about time they were recognised as a nation in their own right.

I hope that this young woman wins a gold medal.She deserves it.
