Obaida, a former refugee from Afghanistan
Escaping as a girl with her mother and siblings from Afghanistan, Obaida shares her journey to resettle in the US. It took 3 weeks to dodge bombings and cross the border, and after 12 years in a refugee camp in Pakistan, during which time half of the children in the camp died, Obaida found life and happiness in the USA as she learned English and graduated early to attend college and become a social worker. Now a wife and a mother, Obaida gives back to the current refugees as they seek peace and the opportunity to resettle here in the US. "I am blessed"
