My experience of the rise with refugee was different experience because I did some community service with refugees before in the Albany area. I was able to learn new things about why the Syrians are refugees in the first place. Another thing that was important was knocking down the negative stereotype of being a refugee. They aren’t dangerous and that they go through an intense screening process in order to be allowed into the country. These are the type of information that was passed on to the students. Overall it was a good event and I thank the Michelle for inviting us.
