We are happy to have hosted Sara on Sunday the 15th and began listening to her story of multiple successes and resilience. Sara comes from a mixed family (Palestinian and Syrian) in which many familial narratives of loss and displacement still linger wherever she makes home. Five years in Turkey, with advanced level of English and Turkish in addition to her mysteriously-accented Arabic, Sara is a fighter with patience and elegance. Academically excelled in her department, she now continues her graduate studies at the Economics Program where she is planning to write a thesis on ecological footprint and the effect of the economic growth on that matter. Welcome to UmAy, our safe and peaceful space, and we hope to see you soon and often!
