This woman is 27 years old and arrived from Afghanistan on November 10, 2015. She worked as an administrative assistant for a U.S. company and her life was at risk so she was given a visa to leave her country. She left her parents and one disabled brother in Afghanistan and has a sister here. She speaks English very well and hopes to find a job as an administrative assistant. She attended a fine arts university in Afghanistan and loves to paint on canvas.
The second visit will be to a woman that arrived from Cuba on November 3, 2015. She is 38 years old and lived part of her life in Spain, 18 years. She learned how to do hair and makeup and worked hard while she lived in Spain. Since she arrived here, she has been living with a cousin that has allowed her to borrow some things so she can get by until she gets herself together here. She loves being here, likes the people, climate and sense of respect people have here. She has a beauty parlor table and chair and would like to start doing hair for a living.
