- •What were your first thoughts when the airplane carrying you and your family touched down in America?Were you absorbed in the moment? RefugeeOne is right near our campus. Uptown is full of immigrants. I hope you can find someone who can share in your thoughts and feelings.
- •How long did it take for you to make new friends in America?You came in 2010. It's been 6 years since. I hope you have someone to vent to when things go south.
- •How awkward does it get when you tell someone you're from Baghdad?There was a long pause and akward laughter when we first met. I hope this isn't an everyday occurrence for you, but it probably is.
