The young author of The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State , says: “I am honoured to be part of an initiative that seeks to address the plight of the youth in the MENA region and is bringing together global leaders and experts to combat the youth crises here. I look forward to the opportunity to use this global stage to reach out to millions of young people, just like me, who are victims of war, violence and brutality and give them hope for a better future by sharing my story with them. If I could make it, so can they.”
