Last Day

Today was my final day of volunteering at the refugee center before I leave to go back home to the United States. I met with Adnan in the afternoon and finished up some paperwork for the program. We talked about my time here and what went well. I said my goodbyes to the other workers at the center, wished them the best of luck, and took one last group picture. As I walked back to the parking lot for the last time, I reflected on all that I had learned during my stay in Sweden. I am heading back home to my family and friends, something that the refugees at the center don't have the luxury to do. I hope those at the center will one day be able to find a new place to call home or safely return to their own countries.
