Meet Mallary Becker!
She's a Communciation major taking additional courses for her TESL certificate to teach English abroad. She decided to take this course because it was an amazing opportunity to gain real world experience. She fell in love with journalism after taking JRN 200 with @ednakfoor at @oaklandu. She hopes that this will inspire others to think about life and it's perspective outside of America's ideology.

Meet Morgan Brouillet! A communication major, PR minor. She took this elective because she thought she needed to be put outside of her comfort zone and do something for herself. She's interested in the refugee crisis because it is a timely subject and deserves to be acknowledged.

We also helped organize a Squat clothing bank, and got our nails painted by the children staying within it--an abandoned place of residency for refugees completely run by and organized by refugees--and said our goodbyes to our "Greek Dad" and mentor John Psaropoulos of Al-Jazeera.

Meet our PR interns! Day 9: @allyszydlowski and @ccbbttss have been holding down our social media efforts. Ally is a Com major/PR minor, focusing on the suicide awareness within the refugee camps. Christina is a journalism major/PR minor focusing on the minority Christian population within the refugee camps. Our first night home Christina whipped together a family dinner thanks to Ally's assistance at the grocery store.

Our last day on the island of Lesvos was unlike any other. We spent the day in the village of Kara Tepe, where residents that come from all walks of life, creeds, and cultures are encouraged to come together as equals and celebrate their cultures together. As many of these refugees walk this journey due to a divisive inequality and hatred, Kara Tepe offers a means to bring people together as one humanity under God with love and harmony. We even had some young photographers eager to learn our craft. Truly an inspiring experience.
