Schwan's Story

This country is very good for our two children. Our family is safe here. Our children will go to university and have good jobs.

In my country, I was an engineer. Now, I don't use my education at my job.

Sometimes I worry about my children. My son is learning English and history in his school. Is he also learning to drink alcohol and take drugs?

I see that many teenagers in the United States are ashamed of their parents. I want my children to respect us.

We are Kurdish from Iran. I want my children to read and write in English and in Kurdish.

My wife and I want to teach our children the best from Kurdish and American culture. Is it possible?
