Oslo Freedom Forum and an Internship with Bahrain Rehabilitation and Anti Violence Organization by Anne Hall Jul 11

“As Salam Alaykom” I greeted my mentor, Dr. Nada Dhaif, excitedly over a skype call in early May. We chatted briefly about the expectations and responsibilities interning remotely for BRAVO (Bahrain Rehabilitation and Anti-Violence Organization). She ended the phone call asking if I would be attending the Oslo Freedom Forum, and enthusiastically I told her yes. As a previous speaker of the forum she told me that she was so glad to hear that because attending the Oslo Freedom Forum is truly an experience of a lifetime. She then proceeded telling me how she and her husband were going to try to make it, however, due to the travel restrictions in Bahrain, there was a possibility that they might be denied to travel to Norway.

When I visited Moscow, the weather was relatively clear, leading tourists to flock to Red Square. An usually large number gathered not on the square itself, but along Bolshoy Moskovorestky Bridge, overlooking the walls of the Kremlin.
