Commencement Keynote Speaker and Nobel Peace Prize Recipient Nadia Murad shares her story with the Class of 2023. Murad is the founder and president of Nadia’s Initiative, a non-profit dedicated to rebuilding communities in crisis and advocating for survivors of sexual violence. In 2014 Murad and other women and girls in her village in Northern Iraq were forced into sexual slavery by ISIS. She escaped and fled to the West to become a global activist, an ordeal that she describes in her New York Times best-selling memoir The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State.
