Working with immigrants/refugees in the community to help them become adjusted to their new environment.
Project: My Puksta Project for the upcoming year is working with immigrants/refugees in the community to help them become adjusted to their new environment. Most specifically working with agencies that focus on helping them integrate into society, including teaching English and helping them connect to resources.
Inspiration: I am an immigrant in this country and have gone through the process of becoming integrated into my community. I understand the difficulties of moving to a new country where you don’t speak the language, don’t know the culture and don’t have people around you that understand you. This is why I would like to work with this specific community.
Future Plans for Project: I hope to be able to help others who are going through this difficult transition understand they are not on their own. That there are resources and people around them that would like to help them.
