Part Three of The Current
A Thousand Farewells: Nahlah Ayed
We started this segment with a clip from CBC correspondent Nahlah Ayed, reporting from some of the hottest of the world's hotspots. But before she covered the world's turmoil, she lived it. When she was in grade school, her family moved from the suburbs of Winnipeg to a Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan. She returned to Canada as a teenager.
Her memoir, A Thousand Farewells tells the story of that great transition in her life and the impact it's had on her career - covering uprisings in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia.
Nahlah also reported for Syria before the current crisis, but recently enough to see the growing resentment with the region in Damascus. She was in our Toronto studio.
