On Repurposing Struggle into Strength - A Conversation with Lucy Antrobus

On this episode, I speak with Lucy Antrobus founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Refugee Voices. Her organisation, based in Lausanne, offers a confidence building program to young refugees, migrants and other marginalised groups in Switzerland. Lucy shares with me her ambition to make an impact in the world by tapping into the human potential in diverse communities. She enthusiastically talks about the power of using storytelling as a tool for personal transformation.


Show Notes

At the end of the show, I ask all my guests the same set of questions to get a sneak preview into their favourite music or books. Here are the links to Lucy's answers. The song she constantly listens to at the moment is ‘I Need You’ by Jon Batiste. The book that particularly resonated with her at a specific time in her life is The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Her all-time favourite book that she absolutely recommends is The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay.
