Arizza Nocum, daughter of a Muslim mother and a Christian father, knows a thing or two about bridging the gap between faiths for mutual respect and peace-building. She and her family have built six libraries around the Philippines since 2008, many of which are in child soldier recruitment camps. Nocum shared her unique perspective during her One Young World Summit speech last week in Bangkok. She called on the international community to understand how conflict is often driven by poverty, injustice and history. She believes empathy through cultural exchanges and inter-faith dialogue, like her Kris Library venture, is but one way to curb radicalization on the individual-level.
