Alliance and her family came here as refugees a year and a half ago. Her favorite thing about Minnesota? “They provide education for free.”
“I’m thankful we moved to Minnesota because we discover new things and always get to meet new people.”
At first, she was scared because everything was so new.
Her dad encouraged her to play soccer, and her mom helped her feel confident about going to school, where her favorite subject is now “maybe all of them.”
Someday, Alliance hopes to be a doctor or a clothing designer.
“I feel Minnesota is home, because it’s the place we’re going to say for a long time.”
Alliance and her family were featured in our 2018 Annual Report.
