Schreyer Honors Scholar Lydia Williams

The Syrian refugee crisis was just beginning in 2012 when, on a whim, Lydia Williams she picked up a book called “The Syrian Rebellion” by Fouad Ajami. It changed her life. Now a senior political science major at Penn State Harrisburg, Williams traveled to Turkey this year to study the plight of the refugees through the Turkish Heritage Organization Summer Research Program.
