What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about MSF was how they had helped in my very own country's refugee camps.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that by finding out about MSF regardless of what size or age I am, I can make a difference. I can use my gift of speech to raise awareness and be the change this world needs.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

There's a drastic difference between the people MSF aid and me. Unfortunately these people have to go through unbearable sicknesses, malnutrition, and violence, but fortunately I was blessed enough to be able to come to Canada a place where I can be safe, well fed, and healthy.
