The K. Family


As Interviewed by Nour Zoweil, March 10, 2019
"They came up to her and they were like, 'You have to take your hijab off or you go back home and you do not go outside anymore.' And then we never went out again with her and my mom."

Introductory Profile: About The K. Family

For my Firsthand History project, I interviewed the K. family. They were deeply affected by the Syrian Civil War and had to restart their lives in the United States.

My family was interested in helping refugees, and we got to know the family. I interviewed the oldest children in the family about the transition from Syria to the U.S., how the conflict affected school, and how they got out of Syria.
