GHOSON’S STORY | Leros Refugee Camp, Greece // Possessed of great strength and great sorrow, Ghoson was emblematic of so many of the people we met and stories we were told. That they had fled after great loss, that they had the highest hopes for their children, that they faced an uncertain future. But in the face of so much, there was the necessity for bravery, in both spirit and appearances, and even as Ghoson broke into tears describing the loss of her husband and the things she’d left behind - we knew that she would push forward for the daughter’s that had become her life, and the idea of what the future held for them all. My favorite moment from our interview, was a rare moment of laughter - I asked Ghoson what she wished for her daughters, Fatima and Bahia (left and right), she answered, laughing: “I hope they become doctors!” #REFUGEPROJECT (at Lero, Dhodhekanisos, Greece)
