Refugee, Dishwasher, Heart Doctor
My story of pursuing the American Dream and recreating it for everyone.
The success of my family is the product of the direct and indirect acts of kindness by Americans. People like you invested in my journey from washing dishes as a Syrian Kurdish refugee to treating heart disease as an American cardiologist today.
We are always in debt to America for giving us a home and a foundation to pursue our dreams. I am truly lucky and blessed to return the favor by investing in underserved communities and serving people in need.
I am currently working on memoir of my journey as a Syrian Kurd fleeing my home to living in refugee camps in Germany then arriving to USA as a Muslim refugee two weeks after the 9/11 tragedy.
