Description or Abstract
The phrase 'knowledge is power' may seem a bit cliche but, really, there couldn't be a more true sentence. The most remarkable aspect in life is our ability to gather knowledge and learn, especially at a young age. However, a large part of the world do not have access to formal education; those living in poverty, in war, and in many other hardships, which forces them to live their whole lives in these conditions. But sometimes, just some times, a few of these people are given the opportunity to change that course of life- they are given the opportunity to get an education. When this does happen, these are when they greatest success stories occur, because out of all the people in the world; these are the ones that truly cherish knowledge and education. This audio feature tells the story of a Palestinian refugee named Ibrahim Nasir, my grandpa. The story is told through his own eyes, his daughter's, and his granddaughter's. It discusses the challenges, hardships, opportunities, and accomplishments he faced and how he used education to pull himself out of the life he was living and become one of the most successful doctors in the Middle East.
