I am a Refugee: Finding Home Again in America

Where: Main Library
When: October 4 at 6:30 p.m.

"At age ten, I held my mother's hand as we were forced to flee our home in Bosnia in search for a new place we could call home again. Our refugee journey was long. We jumped from country to country until we were finally given a chance at a new life here in the United States, in the Florence area."

"I hope you will join me in learning more about the refugee population, hear a firsthand account of life as a refugee of life as a refugee in the US, and be inspired to get involved with the cause."
