”When I see any person, the smile on the face, this is very beautiful for me. And they help me for anything. Like the Center for New Americans—the teachers here all the time help me for looking for a job or make the résumé for my experience. And most important, I think here there is more peace—not war, not fighting, and so here we keep safe.” –Mohanned
