We're All From somewhere
Refutees are inspiring graphic messages and reminders to be better and spark positive conversations about Refugees.
We raise awareness though our storytelling talks, collaborations with cause driven organizations and our merchandise.
Giving back in the form of clothing and needed products to local Refugees and Immigrants through IRCO and Catholic Charities.
I came to the United States in 1994 from a Refugee Camp in Saudi Arabia; which is in-itself a true miracle. My parents, six siblings, and I left the regime of Saddam in 1991 for a desert refugee camp in Saudi Arabia, that we spent the next three and a half years enduring. This unforgettable experience became the fuel to my desire to take advantage of every positive opportunity I can.
After college, there was an even more exciting journey that awaited me. I was in a period of my life that was both humbling and life-changing. As I struggled with inconsistent employment during the '08 economic downturn, I used that time to create my own path; the result is that I now have a multi-press printing operation in Hillsboro Oregon.
My story of woven threads from heritage to a refugee camp, art, business and purpose of starting Refutees.
During this talk the audience will gain a new inspired out look, create opportunities, and seek more self improvement.
