Final Project: Engineering and Refugees in Tucson

For my final project, I visited the Refugee Resource Center in Tucson, Arizona. I found Bill O’Brien, a volunteer who teaches refugees engineering. I was also able to speak with two refugees themselves. Amani Lukeba, who is from DR Congo, and Shah Moradian, who is from Afghanistan. I was able to speak with Lukeba and Moradian on their thoughts about the U.S., and some misunderstandings Americans may have of refugees.

For a secondary element, I have included two interactive graphs that are below my video. One graph highlights the number of refugees admitted to the United States from The Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo). The second graph highlights the number of refugees admitted to the United States from Afghanistan. In order to get the full experience, click on a graph, then hover of the blue bars to find the number.

Note: These numbers show the refugees that we’re admitted, not all the ones that applied for refugee status.
