While most of the #FeesMustFall movement is associated with violence and chaos, there were protests that weren't violent in nature. Fasihah Hassan organised movements that were non-violent and her efforts won her an international award.
Fasihah Hassan is a law student from the prestigious Wits University. She was part of the student leadership at the university between 2015 and 2017, as reported by eNCA.
Fasihah played a leading role in the #FeesMustFall movement but did so with dignity and grace. She did not want the voices of students to be heard through violent acts.
For her role during these protests, Fasisah was awarded the Norwegian Student Peace Prize. She is admired for embarking on the movement to help students get equal access to education without the need for chaos.
Fasisah, who is greatly admired by her peers, said she was truly honoured to be awarded.
