The Dawn Will Break is a documentary that is currently in production. It tells the story of some South Sudanese young women, who after fleeing the government’s ethnic cleansing in the early 1990’s, were rescued from a refugee camp in Northern Kenya by German nun, Sister Luise Radlmeier. Micklina Peter is one of the producers of the film. She is also the first of the so-called ‘Lost Girls’ who eventually benefited from a US refugee-relocation program.
She arrived in Colorado in 2003 with only a pair of clothes, her Sudanese High School diploma and transcripts from the International Relations courses she took at the American University in Nairobi. She now has a double Major in Political Science and Women & Gender studies from CU Boulder, and on May 9th she got her Masters Degree in Educational Foundations, Policy and Practice. Veronica Balderas Iglesias brings us the story.
