If you’re looking for someone to speak on the plight of statelessness, you could not find a better spokesperson than Maha. She fought for nearly 30 years for the right to belong, never giving up even when it seemed that every door had been closed. Now, as a citizen of Brazil, she can speak firsthand of the journey that took her from being a mere shadow to a fully recognized member of society.
In Brazil, where Maha received her citizenship, elements of her story are included in the testing required to graduate from secondary school. However, her story has resonance for all students learning about statelessness. Maha can tailor a seminar to meet the needs of your in-person or virtual educational programming.
