This month, we will find the common ground between an Iranian refugee youth activist, a soprano former student and Conrad Charging Choir member, and a U.S. Marine who now advocates for refugees. How, you may ask? Listen now to find out!
On this episode, you'll meet Rooha Haghar, a junior at Conrad High School in Dallas who is also an Iranian Bahá'í activist sharing her story and raising awareness of the fate of other Iranian minorities. You'll also meet her classmate Zasha Garcia, a soprano in Conrad Charging Choir and graduate of the multicultural school where over 30 languages are spoken. Finally, you'll meet US Marine Veteran Joe Jenkins who advocates for refugees through the Human Rights First initiative, Veterans for American Ideals. All three guests epitomize the freedom and bravery of Americans.
