As an educational group, we were planned to go on an excursion of Hiroshima. We arrived in Hiroshima to see the city with little to no...

  • “Aslam wa alykom!”, I never thought a simple hello can be soothing.  That is when I knew this place I can call home.  Dearborn has the most Arab population varying from Lebanon, Yemen, Jordon, Iraq, and Palestine. The people interact with each other in a way of respect, care, and acceptance. Many...

  •  At the time my parents got divorced, I was a freshman in high school in Iowa. My mother decided to take me to Las Vegas, Nevada and start a new life away from my father.
