Nhial Deng - Ethiopia

20 years old from Ethiopia, Nhial is originally from South Sudan. He has been a refugee in Kenya for the last eight years. He completed high school at Kakuma Refugee Secondary School and graduated from Sky School in peace building. He is a member of Sky School’s advisory group and helps with facilitation in Kakuma. Nhial volunteers at URISE, a community based organisation. He founded the Refugee Youth Peace Ambassadors in 2017, a youth-led group that works towards enhancing peaceful coexistence between refugee communities in the camp and helping traumatized refugees triumph over their trauma while in exile. He is passionate about the SDGs as a key to transform our world, particularly SDG 4. Education is hope and empowerment. It enables refugees to secure a more hopeful and brighter future, not only for themselves but also for their communities.
