"In my 5th grade year, Lakeside Middle School invited SETF Executive, Mouaz Moustafa, to come and speak to the kids in my grade about the problems in Syria.
This really impacted and inspired me. I wanted to do something about it.
Then I started planning for about 9 months. I had to talk to many administrators at my school.
I really did learn a lot while doing this project. I learned everything from a Syrian child’s food ration to how their schools are run.
The teachers and students really liked the project. I have received many compliments. I am very thankful for the teachers and students that made this project happen! I couldn’t have done this without them!
I hope that the students and teachers learned to take nothing for granted. I hope they now realize what happens in Syria and also the culture of Syria."
