“There was no future for me there”

the words by Yusra Mardini

The interview with Yusra Mardini at Google Zeitgeist in 2017. 

Yusra made her way to the Turkish coast in 2015 and boarded an inflatable boat carrying refugees to Greece. When the vessel broke down, Yusra and her sister jumped into the sea and swam for hours, pushing the boat to shore on the Greek island of Lesvos and saving many lives.
