Sharing his story, the young man wrote: “4 years ago, I left Kakuma refugee Camp with nothing but God and my go-get-it attitude. That tiny brown envelope on my hand, held everything I had own in the refugee camp.

“Leaving behind my family and friends and moving to a new country where I knew no one was scary. Now I am a McGill University graduate with BA in Computer Science and Economics.

Now I am a McGill University graduate with BA in Computer Science and Economics. All this would not have been possible without the World University Service of Canada (WUSC – EUMC)

What an inspiration this young man is. We often think we have obstacles to overcome. Most of our concerns are first world problems e.g. long lines at the McDonalds drive through (my beef this morning). It is hard to imagine what this young man had to go through to make it this far. Coo Yah – from Kakuma Refugee camp to McGill’s alum list !! As my late Jamaican mom would say “Rockstone a riva bottom nu know sun hot” (google it)

Manyang, you are truly a credit to our race. You are a role model for me and mi three pickney dem. keep going Sir. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to keep the ball rolling.

“Big up and nuff respect my brother!

Its wonderful to hear your story and how you left a refugee camp and relocated to another part of the world where you found an opportunity which led to academic success. May God bless your life and may you continue on the path of success. I also hope that you will make an effort to help others who are in the same situation you were in, who also need someone or something that will open a door for them. God bless you, my dear brother!
