Classroom 3 (Arts and Administration Building)
Former CBC journalist Mellissa Fung brought Afghanistan’s stories home to Canadians – even after being abducted while on assignment at a refugee camp on the outskirts of Kabul. Drawing on her experiences reporting from the region over the last seven years, Mellissa will share what she has learned about Afghanistan, about its people, and about taking on a foreign assignment in one of the world’s most fragile countries. She will also reflect on what Afghans have gained since 2001 … and why we must remain committed to the country at this crucial moment for Afghanistan’s future.
All are welcome to attend.
