For ethical, professional, and personal mandates, I am preoccupied with researching and supporting inclusion patterns of certain groups including new immigrants, refugees, asylees, and other different marginalized groups. While volunteering with Catholic Charities in Houston, Texas, my determination to facilitate citizen and refugees’ settlement in the Unites States has been tightened for human rights causes.
As an Intern at IINE (International Institute of New England), performing different administrative tasks supporting refugees and asylees, my humanitarian understanding of the difficulties refugees and immigrants face when moving to a new country has been highly sharpened. I was encouraged by this new knowledge to participate in rallies, speak to media channels, and I attended the State Refugee Meetings to shed the light on the current refugees’ issues in New Hampshire, an experience that has sharpened my multicultural communication skills.

With the same fierce determination, I mentored a bright Syrian asylee woman in the Boston area to help her resettle and get admitted to prestigious scholarships to study Medicine.

I reached out to the Voice of America corresponded on Syrian refugees’ issues to share with her a letter signed by Robert Carey, then Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement explaining the constitutional rights for refugees of the Refugee Act of 1980. I received a copy of the letter when attending the State Refugee Meeting discussing the current refugees’ issues in New Hampshire during which I grasped new notions about the cause, especially when listening to the UNHCR officers’ remarks.
