Episode Info

Episode Info:

This week, we wrap up Rewriting Immigration with a tear-jerker. Stephanie DeOrio, a high school ELL teacher, poet, and friend, heads to Canada to talk to her friend and former student, Leen Chikh AlChabab. Leen is a Syrian refugee who came to the US looking for safety and opportunity. But after the 2016 election, she was forced to flee to Canada with her family in the middle of the night. Through her eloquent reflections, we hear the undying optimism of a young girl who simply wants to feel at home and live out her dreams in the country she loves.
