Barav - Back to the future - Recalibration, national belonging and having no friends but the mountainsMulti Story Edinburgh
04/09/22 • 5 min
Each episode is a snapshot, a moment, a sneak inside the minds of our graduates. In season 3 we talk to graduates about going back. But is it back to the beginning or back to the future? In this episode we meet 2020 International Relations graduate Barav Barzani and chat recalibration, national belonging and having no friends but the mountains.
Originally from Iraqi Kurdistan, Barav Barzani came to Edinburgh to study International Relations. Now back in the capital Erbil, he is keen to start on a career in local government.
Whether it is returning home after graduation, returning to Edinburgh after adventures elsewhere, or just returning to a place that felt like the past but turned out to be the future, season 3 of Multi Story Edinburgh explores how going back is never life in reverse.
