Description

Event: September 27, 2017, George Mason University, Johnson Center, 3rd Floor, Room E
My Journey in America is a heartfelt storytelling night where immigrant women open up and share a glimpse of their struggle to find their voice in America!

We hear a lot about immigrant men, but what do we know about immigrant women?” said the director of the program, Hanan Daqqa.

Hanan Daqqa started the program as a TV show with Fairfax Public Access. Her show “My Journey in America” invited immigrant women entrepreneurs to tell their American story and get some feedback from top entrepreneurs. Her first guest was Dr. Fariba Parsa, an affiliated faculty at the Center for Women&Gender Studies at George Mason. Feeling empowered and inspired by this experience, Dr. Parsa thought of starting Storytelling Nights for immigrant women as part of her organization, Women's E-Learning in Leadership, (WELL) and welcomed Hanan Daqqa to host the event!

“At the storytelling night, you will hear directly from four amazing women from different parts of the world and will be inspired by how they overcome their challenges and what resources helped them the most...You will see America in the eyes of immigrant women and learn how it can be a better place for all of us!” said Hanan.
