Quick Quotes. Alek Wek on Dignity and Being a Refugee.

Alek Wek, Numero China

“I was once a refugee and when you are a refugee you have absolutely nothing. Refugees are often stigmatized yet anyone can be a refugee. Refugees do not want handouts. They want tools, they want to be empowered so that they can take control of their own destiny. Refugees are dignified people.” – Alek Wek in the latest issue of Forbes Africa.
