OUR STORY - JULY 2018: “We left Hama in 2013 because the government army entered our town, so we fled to another city in Syria. There was more fighting there, so we decided to go to Turkey. I had to stop going to school for two years, and I’ve been working while studying. I’m in eighth grade, and I want to go to school so that I can become a math teacher and help my mom and siblings.” - Khaled

UPDATE- DECEMBER 2018: “School is going well. My teachers are great, but I’m having trouble in history and literature because they teach in Turkish. My best friend Ahmad is always making me laugh! In the future, I see myself in college studying medicine. If I could tell the world anything, it would be that we must remain united.”   - Khaled 

UPDATE - APRIL 2019: “My favorite place in school is the classroom because my friends and I gather there! My best friends are Abdulhadi and Ahmad. If I could, I would repair some things inside like the school, like the bathrooms! During the mid-year break, I began training for a league I’m in. I’m the league’s top scorer! I feel strongest when I’m on the field and playing against an opponent with all my strength!” - Khaled 

UPDATE - OCTOBER 2019: "I'm currently enrolled in a Turkish school. I'm enjoying it a lot, especially since 11th grade is really tough. I get to really test myself and see how much I can do." -Khaled
