Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus

Testimonial / Lecture

On Tuesday 7 November, Yazan Rajab has been invited by UCOS to share his story as a Syrian refugee. Spending his youth in Aleppo, Yazan Rajab fled his country in 2012 fearing arrestation by the government’s security forces. It was the start of a long and though journey to Belgium, where he arrived in 2014 and was granted asylum. Currently, he is studying at VUB as part of the Welcome Student-refugees Programme. Rajab has written a book “Nooit meer bang zijn” (Never be afraid again) in which he wrote down his life experiences.

Join us for Rajab's testimonial, on Tuesday 7 November, 6pm, at the VUB Loungebar 1050. The lounge is opened from 4pm onwards.
