In honor of World Refugee Day, Secretary John B. King, Jr. sat down to chat with Haja Kalokoh about the challenges that she faces as a refugee from Sierra Leone and as a first generation college student.

Our teachers, schools and communities play an important role in helping refugees to succeed despite the enormous stresses that come with being unrooted from their lives. Education empowers our refugee community with the life opportunities everyone deserves.
