Shamima Begum has learned a valuable lesson about citizenship. Nine years ago she ran away to become an Isis bride.  She would learn that her decision had dire consequences and when she discovered her mistake it was too late.  When she finally escaped she learned she could not return home, because her English citizenship was revoked.  Since then she has fought to regain her citizenship, but to no avail.  Fiorella explores the story.  She ponders how the then teenager was able to get to Syria unnoticed and unquestioned.  Fiorella also wonders how she escaped, but the question she has, does Shamima deserve a second chance?  Could the former Isis bride shed a light on the organization and how she was recruited?
