Ehsanullah Amiri, Toronto Star, ‘YouTube has changed my life.’ How Afghan refugees stuck in limbo built a global following. “The channel displays immigrants’ hard living conditions and their daily life stories. It often broadcasts the beauty of Indonesia when he gets out from his little flat. (He lived in a refugee camp when he first arrived and later moved to a flat.) The host has a weekly live session on his YouTube for Q&A with his audience in Persian. The channel has more than 7,000 subscribers.” YouTube Silsila Channel
