Abdi Nor Iftin is a refugee who learned English as a boy in war-torn Mogadishu by watching American films. His determination to survive many near-death situations and come to America is an amazing adventure, sure to deepen our empathy for immigrants.
This community is where I come for support, friendship and fun. It is a place to live to my religion in the church and the larger community. This religion allows me to speak my truth even when my truth changes.
