And with a goofy selfie in the middle of the coffee shop, two really big hugs, and maybe a couple of tears... she’s off. @destinylalane is one of those people who’s never afraid to be herself (even if she says she’s still figuring it out) and speak her mind. She has been a constant encouragement since whirring into this little city a few months ago and I’m incredibly thankful for the friendship we’ve formed. I have no doubt she’s going to keep taking the world by storm and I can’t wait to continue sharing with and learning from one another. I’ll see you again sooner than we think, love! #AchieveYourGreatness

Its been 9 months since I left America. I was fed up with our refugee policy and wanted to use one of our few privileges as Muslim Americans—my passport—to support those stuck behind borders. I planned for a 3 month trip to support refugees in Greece, but ended up traveling throughout Europe to the Balkans, from living in a refuge house in Bosnia to Syria and Lebanon. I’m currently in Iraq, following their struggles and understanding where they find Noor to keep going.
I have been a trauma specialist for 9 years and started this work because I wanted to help people in the darkest part of their lives. Losing my father when I was younger has shown me that grief and loss shows up in so many different ways and can carry pain into your future.
I want to know why refugees keep going, what keeps them from taking drugs, drinking, selling their bodies, or returning to the war zone. I’m inspired by how they go through heavy trauma, but still keep going. From this experience, I cannot step away from the refugee crisis and will continue to support it from afar. — Rabhi Bisla, PTSD specialist
