The future of young refugees | Deborah Priya Henry | TEDxUTP

Deborah shares her view on how the status of refugees will be in the next years, by helping them trough education and teaching young kids to have certifications while in Lebanon. Her experience towards it gives a great view on how can we help from the outside. Deborah took to the runway and fashion editorials at the age of 15, and later moved to London in 2003, landing herself the opportunities to collaborate with such luxury houses as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Ungaro. Deborah is a Malaysian beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe Malaysia 2011 and Miss Malaysia World 2007. She was also placed in the Top 16 at Miss World 2007. Henry left her modelling career to champion the lives of refugee children in Malaysia. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
