“… I think it’s important to remember that these are real people and real stories and I think that their words absolutely need to be heard…Ellen’s work is really heart felt and honest and she’s delivering a very important message…It’s important to be having these conversations of forced displacement and to hear these stories and hear about the suffering people are enduring around the world…”
