When my family and I first migrated to America as political refugees from Iraq, we were placed in a shelter where we lived for two years. With the help of various public and private social resource programs like Food Stamps and Housing subsidies, my family was able to succeed and live a comfortable life. I personally experienced the impact that social work has on helping families like my own and developed a strong interest in the social work field.
