My name is Ali Raza Ashraf and I am from Pakistan. I am a student of Migracode and Volunteering at Open Cultural Center. I came to know about OCC through my Migracode Program Manager, when I came to know about what OCC is, It does not take too long to make my decision.
OCC is an organization that inspires, motivates, and empowers the refugee and migrant communities. When I look at the world, even though I am an immigrant, I see myself living a privileged life compared to other people, especially migrants. I want to give back to society, I want to share what I have so everyone can have resources and knowledge to empower themselves. And OCC is helping me to deliver what I dream of.
I met the most amazing people of my life at OCC, everyone is here with the same goal to make the world a better place to live. We are a family taking care of each other, everyone is so supportive and passionate to make a change in the world. I am so proud to be part of such a noble project and I am very thankful and lucky to get this opportunity. Peace comes with love and respect, May GOD bless us with love and peace, today and always.
