Ra'na's Story

Ra’na’s Story


I knew going into my final semester of college that I wanted to make my project meaningful.

At the time President Trump just signed Executive Order 13769, barring entry into the U.S. to travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries, including Iran. Ra'na, a student at my college at the time, was one of two students on campus from Iran who was affected by this executive order. This is her story, and I can't thank her enough for sharing it with me and with you.
