We hear stories from refugees every day who have lost everything, yet they continue to fight for hope and a better future for the people they care about. I'm inspired every day by their ability to keep moving forward in the face of unimaginable tragedy and struggle. If just one of their stories inspires someone to do good, how could we stay silent?

What if this was my family and I? What if my family and I were forced to leave our home, our jobs, our friends, and our community, to walk hundreds of miles or cross the sea only to be turned back? What if we made it through all of that and more and we were lucky enough to finally seek refuge in a safe place only for our new neighbors only see us as "refugees"? I want to do everything I can to keep this from happening to someone else's family.

Leaving one's community, job, neighbors, and extended family to find a safe place to call home is desperately painful. I am honored to be a part of this work, of reminding us that the refugee story is a story of mothers & fathers, brothers & sisters, sons & daughters.

As an American citizen of Lebanese origin, I witnessed first hand the plight of refugees and persecuted minorities in the Middle East. Thus my continuous desire to help and make a difference in the lives of all refugees.

My passion for working with refugees and other vulnerable populations is something that is ingrained in my DNA. Refugees are just like us, they have career aspirations, families to take care of, friends to dream with, and most importantly, they're human. Why wouldn't I care about refugees?
