Tawakkol Karman

Students Travel to Santa Barbara to Hear Tawakkol Karman Speak

On Saturday, April 8th students traveled to University of California, Santa Barbara to hear Tawakkol Karman speak. Karman was the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. She continues to travel and speak about the importance of human rights. BHS students enjoyed hearing her lecture and found inspiration as she answered questions from the audience. The BHS students that attended this event were made up of five young women from five different countries. Their diverse background, paired with the message of human rights and unity from such a strong female role model, like Karman, made for a special evening in Santa Barbara.
