Yonas learned to love school and feels driven to do his best. His advice for us is to grow this program: “Refugee kids really need these experiences.” He especially enjoyed production In the kitchen and participating in a job-interview event led by Starbucks.
Yonas plans to attend URI in the fall and major in engineering. He still hopes to apply everything he learned in a summer job. Like the rest of us, he’s hanging tight and staying flexible.
