Civic Engagement: I am the founder and president of Global Friends Coalition, a nonprofit that has had my heart, my mind, and my time since we were established in 2009. Global Friends fosters refugee integration through work with both resettled refugees and the broader public. With 200 volunteers a year, we are creating a connected community where we all can thrive. I am also co-chair of the City of Grand Forks’ Immigrant Integration Initiative.
