My name is Mohammed, I'd rather to be called Moe, I am originally from the Middle East. I came to the U.S about three years now. I escaped the civil war in Iraq. I was threatened to death so I decided to leave my precious five sisters and a diabetic father. I never could realize what my goal is, what my mission is, or why I am here? This nagging question was in my head all the time. I was born in a poor family my father who has a chronic diseases and five orphan sisters. I knew when I was seven that my life is going to be very tough. I still remember hearing my dad saying why God did you give me six children? I always felt that I was a mistake and burden on his shoulder, I wished many times to be vanished from this life. people in my home country were killing each other for so many non-valid reasons. I decided to escape and find a better way of living so that I can help my family and my sick dad. My immigration journey was so long, I was transferring from country to another. I experienced all kind of bad things, homelessness, hunger and depression. After waiting four years in Jordan as a refugee, my application was accepted by the immigration department of the US. When I came here, I did not speak any English, I was so afraid and lost. I did not have friends, or family or relatives. I was completely by myself. I had such a rough time that words can not describe it. I joined ESL classes at Continuing Education and was going to school everyday for twelve hours. I laterally lived there for about two years until I learned the language. After the language barriers were conquered I needed to find a job so that I can live independently without government assistance. and I did find a job with goodwill industries as a job coach. I supervise and coach fourteen clients who are either mentally or physically disabled. The only thing that helped finding this job was my experience back home in this field, I used to work in an asylum hospitals. I did so many things, feeding, bat
