Young migrants and refugees in Greece wanted to be heard. So they started their own newspaper

•, By Fahrinisa Campana

Mahdia Hosseini, 28, and Fatima Sedaghat, 16, sit elbow-to-elbow at the corner of a long, wooden table, their heads nearly touching. They're editing an article about the importance of setting goals for oneself, which Sedaghat penned for the next issue of Migratory Birds, a refugee-run newspaper in Athens, Greece.

The two young women are working at the Network for Children's Rights youth center in downtown Athens, which serves young refugees, migrants and low-income Greeks. It's open from morning until night, but is busiest just after school lets out around 3 p.m.
