My Presentation at University of South Florida

Posted: 09/17/2016 in Uncategorized

I’ve had the honor to present once again at the Interdisciplinary School of Global Studies at University of South Florida, but the 4 minute speech in this video is from March this year.

There are a few people I’d like to thank over in Florida: Octavio for being ‘the messenger’, the Tampa Bay Times for being the first ones to publish my story I’m a Refugee, prof. Eric Fiske for inviting me and helping organize the event that was open for public, and Dr. Hiba Abdelwahab, and his is assistant Sajjad Hussain. Dr. Hiba is truly the kindest professor I have ever met. I am so glad our paths have crossed, and as he says:”I do believe in higher power…”

I spoke in two of his classes, and boy, the second one was challenging! I had a young man from Syria asking all sorts of questions, and speaking in front of political science students very well educated on wars, was different from the past experiences. It was my honor and pleasure, and I am so grateful for meeting the students. I feel like I know them! You guys were amazing, thank you.

But after every presentation, it is the people I meet. The feedback I receive and the e-mail that arrive days after my speech.

Thank you. ❤
