From Iraq to UW–Madison

During December’s University of Wisconsin–Madison graduation ceremony at the Kohl Center, Chancellor Becky Blank singled out Umaima and her family for special mention (watch the video here). A refugee from Iraq, Umaima graduated from the UW Odyssey Project in 2016 with her mother and brother, also at UW now, while her younger siblings attended Odyssey Junior. We are so proud of all that Umaima and her family have accomplished since their graduation from Odyssey. Congratulations, Umaima, and best of luck as you go forward to your dreams!
